Steve Gerlach is one of Australia's few thriller writers. Born and bred in Australia, Gerlach's fast-paced, cut-to-the-bone style is a refreshing voice in the dry, barren Australian literary scene.

Steve's background includes many varied roles. He has worked as an editor for a book publisher; as the editor-in-chief of an Australian motorcycle magazine; editor and publisher of an international crime magazine, Probable Cause; a researcher and columnist for a major Australian daily newspaper; a Technical Publications Officer in the security industry; marketing executive for an international telecommunications software company; a writer for Australian Defence training and software producers; and currently works in the field of major infrastructure procurement and delivery.

His novels include:
  • Rage
  • The Nocturne
  • Love Lies Dying
  • Lake Mountain
  • Hunting Zoe
  • Within His Reach
  • Injustice
  • A Thousand Mettle Folds
  • In Laymon's Terms (ed.)
  • Autopsy I - Flesh of the Dead

He was also the Historical Advisor on the Australian film, Let's Get Skase, and spent a fair amount of his youth watching classic black and white television programs such as The Twilight Zone.

Steve Gerlach lives in Melbourne, where he is currently working on a new novel or two.

I hope you enjoy my work and have as much fun reading my novels as I have bringing them to you. My aim is to produce a once-in-a-lifetime ride for all my readers. I pick you up at page one, lock you in tight, and then never let you go - no matter how much you scream - until the last page. Keep your hands inside the cage at all times! Enjoy!
