Simone Kirsch
Created by Leigh Redhead

SIMONE KIRSCH is a Melbourne P.I. with a real difference, coming from a background as a stripper. As a matter of fact, over the course of the series, she still hasn't completely given up the stripping, still performiing occasionally as Vivien Leigh. The big advantage with this kind of a background is that it gives Simone great contacts in the nightclubs and brothels around Melbourne. She is also willing to take whatever chances necessary to make her investigation work.

Her laterst book is called Cherry Pie, named after the song by Warrant, which Simone loves to dance to.

All in all, a sexy, sassy series featuring a protagonist you find you want to learn more about. Recommended.

And the author's no slouch, either. The daughter of hippie parents, Leigh has been a ramblin' kinda gal most her life. She's lived all over (Paris, Los Angeles, New Zealand, Australia) and worked as a cook and deckhand on a prawn trawler, a lingerie waitress, a masseuse and, yes, a stripper. She also has a communications degree from the University of Technology Sydney, and is apparently now training to become a chef. She lives in Mullumbimby in northern New South Wales.
