Mercedes Mercier writes ‘just-one-more-page’ crime with twisting plots and relatable characters. As well as writing, she works in the criminal justice system, providing her unique insight into the world of prisons, crime and offenders. After a brush with death, Mercedes decided to throw herself into life. She lived overseas, become a black belt in Karate, skydived, and volunteered with animals. She is currently writing her second novel, to be published in 2023. When she doesn’t have her nose in her laptop and her mind in a story, she loves to read, travel, try new restaurants, and listen to podcasts (true crime of course). She dreams of living on a big property with a menagerie of animals, but currently lives in Adelaide with her partner and just the one dog.
