Jaye Ford

Jaye Ford is the author of Beyond Fear.

Jaye Ford is a former journalist who decided at the age of forty to get serious about her dream to become an author. Eight years later, her first novel, Beyond Fear, became the subject of a bidding war in Australia before being released by Random House.

Beyond Fear has sold in Germany, Russia, Poland and Spain, where it will be released in 2012.
Before getting serious about writing, Jaye was a news and sport journalist in the Australian media for twelve years, working in a variety of roles, including reporter, sub-editor, news reader and TV presenter.

In 1988, she became Australia’s first female presenter of a live national sport show, hosting Sport Report (as Janette Fulford) on SBS. She later co-hosted the evening news on Prime TV in Newcastle, NSW.

After leaving the media, she ran her own public relations business for six years.

She is now writing full-time and currently working on her second thriller called Scared Yet? Which is due for release in 2012.

Jaye is married with two children and lives at Lake Macquarie in the NSW Hunter region.


At seventeen, Jodie Cramer survived a terrifying assault at the hands of three strangers. Her best friend Angie was not so lucky.
    Now thirty-five, Jodie is a teacher and mother of two – and her past is a horror she’s buried deep. When she sets out for a weekend in the country with three friends, all she has in mind is a few laughs and a break from routine.
    However, unknown to the four women, their secluded cabin was once the focus of a police investigation and, like Jodie, it nurtures a dark secret.
    As her friends relax, the isolation reawakens Jodie’s terrifying memories. When she finds evidence of trespassers, she is convinced they are being watched. But no one will believe her and as her past threatens to overwhelm her, she begins to doubt herself – and her sanity.
    Until two men knock at their door…
