The quality of mercy: Portia interviews Ruth Wykes on the Scarlet Stiletto Awards

Portia, the annual journal and report of Victorian Women Lawyers, published an interview late last year with Ruth Wykes, winner of the 2016 Scarlet Stiletto Awards, for her story “Stone Cold”. The story also won the ScriptWorks Great Film Idea Award.

Ruth is also co-author of two true crime collections: Women Who Kill, written with Lindy Cameron in 2011, and Invisible Women: Powerful and Disturbing Stories of Murdered Sex Workers (Bonnier Publishing Australia), written with Kylie Fox in 2016. Their second book, Impact: The Ripple Effect of Murder is due out with Clan Destine Press in April.
