As Professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, College of Medicine, James Cook University, Caroline de Costa first began writing non-fiction, primarily health books for women, in the 1990s. More recently Caroline has moved into fiction, specifically crime fiction, often using her medical knowledge and experience.

Living in Cairns, surrounded by rainforest both beautiful and sinister, Caroline found that Far North Queensland was the obvious place to set her crime novels. Detective Senior Constable Cass Diamond, a single mother in her mid-thirties with a degree in criminology and a black belt in taekwondo, finds herself and her team heavily embroiled in the landscape as they battle with murder, kidnapping, sex trafficking and other mayhem in Double Madness (2015), Missing Pieces (2018) and Blood Sisters (2019).

Third in the Cass Diamond crime series, Blood Sisters explores sex trafficking and abortion, teenage emotions and adult mischief.
