Blood on the Vine
Cate's first crime novel will be out 2024.
The Ridge wine region is loosely based around the Jaspers Brush wineries where her inspiration came from after completing an inspection as a guest mystery buyer for the NSW Tourism awards at Silo's Estate.
Since then, owners Rajarshi and Sophie have been amazing in their support of Cate writing as they support her with research on local wines. (hehe)
