Steve Gerlach is one of Australia's few thriller writers. Born and bred in Australia, Gerlach's fast-paced, cut-to-the-bone style is a refreshing voice in the dry, barren Australian literary scene. Steve's background includes many varied roles. He has worked as an editor for a book publisher; as the editor-in-chief of an Australian motorcycle magazine; editor and publisher of an international crime magazine, Probable Cause; a researcher and columnist for a major Australian daily newspaper; a Technical Publications Officer in the security industry; marketing executive for an international telecommunications software company; a writer for Australian Defence training and software producers; and currently works in the Integrated Facilities Management sector. He was also the Historical Advisor on the Australian film, Let's Get Skase. Steve Gerlach lives in Melbourne, where he is currently working on a new novel or two.
"Love Lies Dying is a disturbing, twisted, sexually-charged dark ride of suspense." - Douglas Clegg, author of Naomi, USA "Gerlach has created a tense, tightly-written, and terrifying suspense novel. Fans of Ketchum, Laymon, and Slade won't want to pass this one by. Love Lies Dying truly does leave the reader on the edge of their seat. I challenge you to try putting this one down once you've started it!" - Brian Keene, Multiple Bram Stoker Award Nominated Author of No Rest For The Wicked, 4X4, and More Than Infinity.

Truly a terrific read." - Rain Graves, author of Blood of a Black Bird and The Gossamer Eye, USA "LLD's lead female character, Zoe, is one of the most intriguing and beguiling femme fatale antagonists in recent genre fiction." - Cemetery Dance Magazine, Issue 51, USA "A terrific read (with the lights on)!" - The Spook Magazine, USA "LLD is a spare and fast-paced novel - erotically-charged, bizarre and horrifying - drenched in gut-wrenching suspense and sexual savagery." - Cemetery Dance Magazine, Issue 51, USA "Love Lies Dying has a terrifying premise." - Shadow Writer, UK "Gerlach possesses a one-of-a-kind style, a singular voice of clipped sentences that pulls you along and at each chapter break leaves you hungering for more." - Brent Zirnheld, author of Mercy Kills, USA
