Before becoming a popular author, Lindy worked as a journalist and book editor. Her first novel, Golden Relic, was an archaeological adventure published in 1998 in ten monthly installments on the Internet. It was commissioned by the Museum of Victoria, to promote the International Council of Museums conference held in Melbourne that year.
Lindy is also the author of the action thriller, Redback; and co author of two True Crime collections: Women Who Kill and Killer in the Family. In 2010 Lindy founded Clan Destine Press — an independent Australian genre fiction publishing company. She is also a founding member and National Co-Convenor of Sisters in Crime Australia (est. 1991).
She lives mostly happily on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula — on the southern coastline of Australia — with her long-time partner Michele and their menagerie of animals, both feline and canine! An avid golfer, she is determined to play every one of the three hundred and seventy-six courses in the State at least once.
