About David Vernon

I am a freelance writer and editor. I am father of two boys. For the last few years I have focussed my writing interest on chronicling women and men’s experience of childbirth and promoting better support for pregnant women and their partners. Recently, for a change of pace, I am writing two Australian history books. In 2014 I was elected Chair of the ACT Writers Centre.

In 2010 I established the Stringybark Short Story Awards to promote the short story as a literary form.

When I picked up this book I planned to take my time and read it at a gentle pace, but I found the stories so gripping I couldn't put the book down. I highly recommend it.

Review by: Sandra Black on March 01, 2015 :
I bought this book last week and couldn't out it down. This is a wonderful collection of short stories, all which fit the theme of being a 'malicious mystery'. The production quality is high — thankfully, and the selection of stories varied and entertaining. I was specifically impressed with the story "Killer Instinct" by Kerry Cameron. WOW, what a ripper of a story that was. But then of the twenty-two stories I didn't find any I didn't enjoy. A great collection.
