Vikki has a long association with crime, starting with The Phillip Island Murder in 1994 which she co-wrote with Paul Daley. Since then, she has written another 17 true crime books, but last year, she crossed a genre line with her PhD novel, The Unbelieved, which won the inaugural Allen & Unwin Crime Fiction Award and was published in August to much acclaim.

Vikki is a hugely popular speaker and a former Sisters in Crime convenor.

Her serial Casefile Presents podcasts, The Vanishing of Vivienne Cameron and Searching for Sarah MacDiarmid, have together been downloaded more than three million times – and she’s been able to give up her day job as a school teacher.

Her latest podcast, The Frankston Murders. was released two weeks ago and has already had 730,000 downloads.
