About the author

Belinda Neil joined the NSW Police in 1987 and over an eighteen-year career worked as an undercover operative, and as a major crime squad detective investigating illicit drug operations, organised crime, and homicide. Belinda was also a police hostage negotiator and trained at the counter terrorist level, leading one of five Counter Terrorist Negotiation Teams at the Sydney 2000 Olympics. After being promoted to the rank of Inspector in 2002, she retired in 2005 due to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, as a result of the many traumatic incidents she had been to. Belinda is passionate about raising awareness of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, especially after having learnt so much through research and therapy.
