Allen and Unwin is going to publish my new book!! I'm thrilled, particularly considering how hard it is to get book contracts in this difficult book market. I first read about the protagonist, Louisa Collins, in "Fifty crimes that shocked Australia" and found it an intriguing story. From the research I have done, I am already addicted. Similarly to Thunderbolt and the subjects covered in my previous books, I have discovered that much of the information published in other works about Louisa Collins - mainly articles or chapters in crime books - is wrong. As usual, I will go back to the original records and let the records reveal the truth about this fascinating historical character. It will be available late in 2014.
This blog covers anything on the horizon of author, historian, genealogist and speaker, Carol Baxter.
