About the Author

Jacqueline 'Rock' Bublitz is a writer, feminist, and arachnophobe, who lives between Melbourne, Australia and her hometown on the west coast of New Zealand's North Island. She wrote her debut novel Before You Knew My Name after spending a summer in New York, where she hung around morgues and the dark corners of city parks (and the human psyche) far too often. She is now working on her second novel, where she continues to explore the grand themes of love, loss and connection.

Reviews

'Before You Knew My Name is so many things at once: a classic murder mystery and a genre-defying trailblazer, a lament for the dead and a celebration of life, a book to linger over and a fast-moving page-turner. Beautiful, brilliant and strangely joyous, Jacqueline Bublitz's debut will have you in its thrall from its powerful first page to its superb conclusion.'
Rose Carlyle, author of Girl in the Mirror

'I loved this addictive and utterly captivating debut, part Whodunnit, part Who was she? It asked all sorts of compelling questions about how society views and judges women, even after death. There is darkness but also a beautiful light that shines through this very special novel. I couldn't put it down.'
Sarah Bailey, author of Where the Dead Go

'This astonishing debut turns the traditional crime story on its head. With a startling voice that compels us to listen, the indomitable victim Alice insists that we remember her life, not her death. Darkly funny, deeply insightful and completely heartbreaking, this novel shows us two very different women, uniquely connected by death, and both searching for hope.'
Petronella McGovern, author of Six Minutes

'A wake-up call, beautifully written and unique feminist exploration of the crime story genre, giving voice and life to those characters who are rarely given that agency, whose names rarely go beyond "dead girl" and "woman who found the body". Meet Alice Lee and Ruby Jones.'
R.W.R. McDonald, author of The Nancys

'The most wonderful book. Unusual, beautiful, feminist, gripping, deserves to win prizes. I loved it so much'.
Marian Keyes, author of Grown Ups

'An unputdownable debut - striking, moving, gripping throughout and so sharp on the things that unite us'
Elizabeth Kay, author of Seven Lies
