Billie Walker

Created by Tara Moss

A new series, well-received, following the adventures of feisty Australian war-time reporter BILLIE WALKER who returns home to Sydney after the war, mourning the disappearance and possible death of her husband Jack Rake somewhere in Europe. Turfed out of her job now that “the men are back,” she takes over her late father’s detective agency.


It’s a wonder Canadian/Australian Tara Moss ever found time to write over a dozen books (including 2014s critically acclaimed non-fiction work The Fictional Woman). An experienced journalist, television and radio producer, documentary host and interviewer, Moss has hosted the Australian true crime series Tough Nuts, Tara Moss Investigates, Tara in Conversation, The Craft Of Writing  and Cyberhate. An outspoken advocate for the rights of women, children and people with disabilities, Moss has been garnered a slew of rewards and honours for her humanitarian work around the world, and her seemingly endless research has seen her tour the FBI Academy at Quantico, spend time in squad cars, morgues, prisons, the Hare Psychopathy Lab, the Supreme Court and criminology conferences, take polygraph tests, shoot weapons, conduct surveillance, pass the Firearms Training Simulator (FATSII) with the LAPD, pull 4.2 G’s doing loops over the Sydney Opera House flying with the RAAF, and acquire her CAMS race driver licence. She is a PhD Candidate at the University of Sydney, and has earned her private investigator credentials (Cert III) from the Australian Security Academy. She currently resides with her family in Vancouver, BC. She probably swims to Nanaimo and back every morning.
