She famously swapped modelling for crime writing in her twenties.

When approached for comment by the publication, lawyers for the Canadian-Australian writer confirmed that she ‘is currently involved in legal proceedings’.
No further details have been released at this stage.

‘Visibility matters, so it’s important to start being more open about it,’ she said. ‘I was hoping that I wouldn’t need it, but now I embrace it.’
‘The walking stick helps me to be more active, enjoy my life more fully and with less pain, and that’s true for a lot of other people,’ Tara added.
‘So I want to be out there and representing, as they say.’
