BDA Books is located in the Inner West of Sydney, just a hop, skip and a jump from iconic Sydney locations like the Opera House, Circular Quay, Darling Harbour and Luna Park.
Belinda D'Alessandro was born in Brisbane, Australia in the early 1970s to an Italian born father and an Australian born mother. Her father moved from Italy to Australia at the age of seven. Her maternal great-grandparents were from both Scotland and Ireland, and she has extended family in Italy, New Zealand, the United States and Canada.
D'Alessandro, the eldest of five children, grew up in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast, and earned her law degree from Bond University in 1992. She worked in government departments and in the private sector for 15 years and moved to Sydney in 2000.
As D'Alessandro started writing her debut crime novel, she also started her own boutique publishing company, BDA Books, in 2007, and moved into the banking and financial services arena in 2010.
D'Alessandro is currently working full time in the heart of Sydney while developing her second and third books which follow on from her debut crime novel.
