Profile Information

on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, Australia
About Me:
I migrated to Australia from England more years ago than I care to remember. I have a crime novel, 'The Burning', out with Virtual Tales as an ebook(www.virtualtales.com and now available on mobipocket and fictionwise). It's a murder story set against the background of bushfires, which occur all too frequently in our hot, dry summers.

I also have a collection of short stories, 'Unfettered Feet', released with Ginninderra Press (www.ginninderrapress.com.au) in Canberra. Some of these stories involve crime and some don't. Some have murderous intent. There's a stalker, a serial killer, a daughter at the end of her tether.
I Am A:
Reader, Writer
Books And Authors I Like:
I like the crime writing of Ruth Rendell, Ed McBain, Ian Rankin, Val McDermid and Minette Walters.
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
I like British crime shows on TV - The Bill, New Tricks, Ghost Squad. My favorite American show is West Wing.

Crimespace win

I was delighted to hear from Daniel Hatadi that I'd won the Crimespace short story contest. With so many great crime writers on the site, I never believed I'd stand a chance, so I'm very glad I had a go, regardless. I did have an advantage with the Aussie connection, I must admit.

Well, now I've chosen my Crimespace t-shirt and I'm dithering about what books I'll buy with my Amazon voucher - so much to choose from, so many books I want to read. A very nice problem to… Continue

Interview on Snapshot 2008

Australian Crime Fiction Snapshot: Jackie Tritt

Interview by Karen

1. Your book The Burning was released first as an e-book, which, I think, is a bit unusual in Australian Crime Fiction. What made you go down that sort of path?

Well, The Burning is actually having a second life as an e-book. It was originally published at the end of 1998, as a 2-in-1 Whodunnit, by Australian Pocket Press within a very limited market. Now it has been reworked for American readers… Continue

Hi Jackie,
Thanks for befriending this mystery author!

You asked about the Australian Bathroom Readers. Only available in Australia. They are the first three books in row three at my Bathroom Reader web page. http://www.artmontague.com/hysterical society.html.

Hi again Jackie,

Forgot to mention I'd ordered The Burning from VT a while back but haven't had a chance to read it yet. It's on my ToDo list.

Also re: Australia. I contributed to three Uncle John's Bathroom Reader books about Australia, had an Australian editor. A freelance writer gets to do some remarkable things but the work is hectic. Would rather write fiction when I have a chance.

Hi Jackie
glad you enjoyed The First Cut - it just one the Readers' Vote in the Davitt Awards.
I'm near Bittern - so closer to your daughter...
Did you know you can go on the SinC-Oz email list (without being a member)?That way you get notified of all events and know when to come and play with us.

Hi Jackie
I reckon we probably live in spitting distance of each other.
Are you a member of Sisters in Crime Australia?

Jackie, I would enjoy hearing from your husband as to some of his all time favorite crime fiction. I would be glad to share mine.

Hi Jackie, or should I say ''g'day!" Yes I'm a VirtualTales.com puppy as well--I have to say I think your book the Burning sounds really interesting--I read your account of how it came about with you and your daughter fighting the fire alone and wasimpressed--keep on writing and keep the fire extinguisher handy!!
