Trudie Trewin grew up on a farm near Mundulla in South Australia. She loved reading and loathed the cold weather, so she usually spent the winter months curled up inside with a good mystery or thriller. One frosty winter’s day when she was twenty-five, she put her book down, jumped in her trusty car and headed north. A week later in tropical North Queensland, the trusty car lost every gear except first. She took this as a sign and decided to stay.
She’s still living just north of Cairns with her husband, three boys, two beagles, one budgie, and one cat, and can read stretched out by the pool instead of huddled inside.
When she’s not writing or reading, she enjoys playing cricket with her boys, swimming, running, bushwalking and watching scary movies. She doesn’t enjoy housework, so she doesn’t do very much of it — She’d rather dream up another story.
