Biography

Cheryl Critchley started her writing career on a local Leader newspaper before spending 21 years at the Herald Sun covering state and federal politics, education, news and features. Cheryl has a strong interest in sociology and psychology and has had seven books published on topics as diverse as AFL football fans, parenting, kids’ sport and Melbourne Zoo’s first baby elephant. Now a freelance journalist and communications consultant, she also volunteers with the AFL Fans Association. Cheryl’s latest book, Mind Behind the Crime (Pan Macmillan), is written with leading psychologist Dr Helen McGrath and analyses the motives and personality disorders of Australian convicted killers. A follow-up to the successful Why Did They Do It?, it investigates new crimes, describes a range of personality disorders and looks at the motives of parents who kill their children and in some cases themselves.
