The domestic thrillers I write shine a light into the darkness that can exist within marital and family relationships. I have been no stranger to turbulent times myself, and this has provided some of the raw material for my novels. I have a sign on my wall saying 'careful or you'll end up in my novel' and this is definitely true!
I am a born 'n' bred Yorkshirewoman, and a mum of two grown up sons. I can offer living proof that life begins at the age of forty, as this is when I decided to escape my unhappy marriage. Shortly afterwards, I graduated from Leeds Trinity University with an MA in Creative Writing. Recently I have married again and have been able to find my own 'happy ever after.'
This is not something you will find in my novels though! I think that we thriller writers are amongst the nicest people you could meet because we pour all our darkness into our books - it's the romance writers you've got to watch...
