P.D. Martin


I write the Sophie Anderson series - fast-paced police/FBI procedurals with lots of profiling and forensics.

My books have been described as similar to Kathy Reichs, Karin Slaughter, Patricia Cornwell's earlier books and James Patterson - with a hint of TV's Medium and lots of Criminal Minds.

I live in Melbourne, Australia, and developed a passion for crime fiction and storytelling at an early age. This interest was backed up through a Bachelor of Behavioural Sciences (with majors in psychology and criminology) and a Postgraduate Certificate in Professional Writing (Creative Writing). I also hold a black sash from the Australian Tiger and Crane Kung Fu School, however I haven't studied kung fu for about three years now - naughty me. And in case you're wondering, PD Martin stands for Phillipa Deanne Martin.

So far I've written five novels featuring Aussie FBI profiler Sophie Anderson. Body Count, The Murderers' Club, Fan Mail, The Killing Hands and Kiss of Death have all received glowing reviews in Australia and overseas. I've also written a sixth book in the Sophie series, a novella called Coming Home that's only available as an ebook.

Prior to becoming a full-time author, I worked as a corporate writer for over ten years, writing award-winning copy for brochures, newsletters, websites, training CD-ROMs, flyers, ads, media releases and magazines.
