My debut novel, In Bitter Chill, was described by the Daily Mail as a ‘tense, well-told story of loss and family secrets’. My second book, A Deadly Thaw, was called ‘relentless in its grip’ by the Financial Times. The third book in the series, A Patient Fury, is The Observer’s Thriller of the Month for October.
I post my book reviews here on Crimepieces and have also reviewed at the Los Angeles Review of Books, Crime Time, crimesquad.com and Eurocrime. Articles and short stories have appeared in the The Guardian, Sunday Express magazine, Metro, Red Online, Big Issue, Traveller and other publications. I’m one of the judges for The Petrona Award for the Best Scandinavian Crime Novel and I particularly love reading translated crime fiction.
In addition to writing and reviewing I also teach crime fiction workshops, moderate book events and give talks on Nordic Noir, Golden Age Crime and other aspects of the crime novel. I can be contacted about any of these areas via my contact page.
I’m represented by Kirsty McLachlan at DGA.
