Jacqui Lambie has always stood out from the mainstream of Australian politicians. She’s been a tireless and highly effective campaigner for the things she passionately believes in, such as a better deal for our military veterans and better care for those afflicted by the scourge of ice addiction. Her autobiography is not a political book.
It's the story of her life as an ordinary working class girl from Tasmania, and her journey through the army, her battles with addiction and depression, her struggles to raise two kids as a single mother and the slow rebuilding of her life that saw her determined to prevent other people experiencing the bureaucratic-inflicted torment that she was forced to survive, The subject matter is real and often raw, but Jacqui handles it with humour, honesty and dignity.
As one of Australia’s most experienced court reporters, the ABC's Jamelle Wells has filed thousands of stories on murderers, sex offenders, thieves, bad drivers, family feuds and business deals gone wrong. In more than 10 years, Jamelle has witnessed many of Australia's most notorious and high-profile court cases. In the line of duty, she has sat next to criminals and their families, been chased, spat on, stalked and carted off by ambulance for emergency surgery after an accident outside ICAC.

Dulcie Bodsworth was the unlikeliest serial killer. Loved everywhere she went, the townsfolk of Wilcannia which she called home in the late 1950s, thought of her as kind and caring.
Dulcie was in fact a cold calculating killer, who by 1958 had put three men in their graves. She would have got away with it all, had it not been for her daughter Hazel who saw the real Dulcie.
My Mother, A Serial Killer is a chilling true story of a murderous mother and the courageous daughter who brought her to justice.
Award-winning journalist Janet Fife-Yeomans has co written this book with Hazel Baron and has written or co-written seven earlier books, including the story of former NSW State Coroner Derrick Hand and the biography of Heath Ledger.
