This book is the culmination of seven years of research and writing, as I followed the case before the courts and the journey of Farquharson’s former wife, behind the scenes.On Father's Day, tells the story of Robert Farquharson, who drove into a Victorian dam and drowned his three sons on Father's Day 2005 to pay his former wife back for ending their marriage.
Farquharson is serving three life sentences with a minimum of 33 years' jail for his sons' murders.
I first interviewed Cindy Gambino in 2007 for a national women's magazine, the Winchelsea mother was so paralysed by her children's chilling deaths that she was in denial and unable to accept that her little boys Jai, Tyler and Bailey had been murdered by their father simply to pay her back.

Billed as “The sickening truth behind our most grisly vampire slayings”, Norris details nine vampire killing cases – including three from Australia.
The case I remember most (and was keen to read more about) is that of Brisbane lesbian vampire killer Tracey Wiggington who made world headlines in 1989 when she was arrested for the brutal murder of a man whom she lured, along with her band of lesbian devotees, under the pretext of sex but slayed him and drank his blood from a stab wound in his neck.
Wiggington was quietly released from prison early in 2012 after almost 23 years in jail.
True True Blood also includes the story of Sacramento vampire killer Richard Chase who killed six people in just one month and the Kentucky Vampire Clan killer Rod Ferrell who was under the delusion that he was a 500-year-old vampire.

Nothing was going to stop breast cancer survivor Deborah De Williams from running 18,026 kilometres around Australia to raise funds for breast cancer research.
Her initial attempt was abandoned – but only after running the last 825 kilometres on broken feet.Told she would never run again, Deborah went on to prove everybody wrong, drawing her inspiration from a dying young breast cancer battler.
Deborah De Williams is the first woman to run continuously around Australia. In 2011 she won the Tasmanian Australian of the Year award.

Watch this video in which Deborah tells us about her experience running across Australia.

One night in March 1999, fifteen-year-old dance student Rachel Elizabeth Barber vanished. No one could have guessed that she had become another girl's 'perfect' victim. Happy. Beautiful. Talented. She had everything her killer could want.
Perceived by crime experts everywhere as one of the most bizarre homicides they had encountered, Perfect Victim recounts two stories: Rachel's mother Elizabeth Southall tells of her family's heart-rendering experience – how they lived through unimaginable tragedy, going to extraordinary lengths to prove their daughter wasn't a runaway. Criminal court reporter Megan Norris provides another side of the picture; the analysis, the astonishment of professionals when faced with the killer's weird and unsettling letters, and the police proceedings that led, eventually, to the Rachel Barber case being solved.
Confronting and compelling, this is an incredible story about a callous and calculated crime.

Please check out the movie trailer In Her Skin which was inspired by this book.
