WENDY LAING

Wendy Laing has been a member of SWWT since 2008.  She has been a committee member, President and is now Secretary, Competition Coordinator and Stylus editor. She runs the Deloraine Writers Group , writes articles for the Meander Valley Gazette, and narrates stories about the Meander Valley during the 1800s called ‘Footsteps Through Time’ for the local radio station.

Memoirs of an Arresting Woman is the fictionalised story of Constable Laurie McKenzie, a policewoman in the Northern Territory during the early 1960s.

When she arrives in Darwin, Laurie is told that because they thought she was a man, she will be the first female to become a constable in the Northern Territory Police Force.

Laurie is posted to the small outback town of Rabbit Creek, where she deals with, among other things, murders, suicide, a wife-beater and crocodile poachers as she strives to earn the respect of the townspeople and her male colleagues.

The book is published by MoshPit Publishing, Hazelbrook NSW and is available on indiemosh.com and as an eBook on Amazon Australia, USA and UK, and Smashwords.
