Georgia Harper is a psychologist who has worked both with serious violent offenders and with trauma victim-survivors. Her career spans correctional and forensic mental health, rural mental health and private practice roles. She was Statewide Coordinator of the Queensland Prison Mental Health Service and, in keeping with her passion for animal welfare, the Senior Inspector Prosecutions for RSPCA Queensland.
Georgia studied journalism before deciding she didn’t have the nous to pursue people’s most difficult stories. Now, being trusted with them is the substance and privilege of her psychology work. She started writing her first novel, What I Would Do to You, as a creative outlet during the pandemic. Georgia currently works in health psychology, and also advises on LGBTIQ+ workforce inclusivity strategies.
Born in Brisbane, she lives on the beautiful Darling Downs and writes in her paddock, under the supervision of her shire horse.
