Discover the books of Melissa Pouliot
Welcome to the home of bestselling Australian crime mystery author Melissa Pouliot. The talented author of page-turning crime mysteries translates her passion and personal missing persons tragedy into fiction novels where every story has a story.
“The case is cold. All hope is lost. Suddenly, the future collides with the past.”
In the dead of night, teenage runaway Annabelle Brown vanishes in the rugged Blue Mountains west of Sydney in a shroud of mystery and intrigue. Twenty-seven years later, with no body, no clues and no leads, the case remains unsolved.
In 2013 Melissa Pouliot released her debut bestselling crime fiction novel, Write About Me, inspired by the disappearance of her cousin Ursula Barwick.
She went on to write the Detective Rhiannon McVee Crime Mystery Series, which so far includes FIND ME, When You Find Me, You’ll Never Find Me and FOUND. Her page-turning novels have people around the world transfixed on what’s going to happen next.
All Melissa’s novels are all endorsed by the Australian Federal Police National Missing Persons Coordination Centre for their role in raising awareness for missing people.
After the release of her first novel, Kings Cross Detectives took a fresh look at Ursula’s case and almost 30 years after her disappearance, Ursula was finally found.
Through the public conversations Melissa has shared she has shown that her beautiful, fun-loving, outgoing, fabulously witty, adventurous and brave cousin Ursula is not just another one-dimensional face on a missing persons’ poster.
Ursula is a loving, and much loved, member of her family, and she will always be remembered. Her lasting legacy is that it is never too late to find your missing person.
