Welcome to my 'bookshop'! Here you can support local UK independent bookshops, find my books plus others I've read and loved, and browse a myriad of currated 'shops' for recommendations. Everyone receives a % of the sale, so everyone benefits :)
In case you've just stumbled across my page, here's a little about me:
I've been writing fiction since my husband set sail across the Atlantic for eight weeks and I had an idea for a book. My debut novel 'Little Bones' (Bonnier 2016) was No 1 in Ireland for four weeks, remained in the top 10 for another four, and was nominated for Irish Crime Novel of the Year (woot!) It launched the bestselling Cat Connolly trilogy.
Moving away from police procedurals I'm keeping a focus on strong female characters, writing psychological thrillers for Corvus Books, part of Atlantic, who also have a shop here. 'Keep Your Eyes On Me' went straight to No 1 in January 2020 and 'The Dark Room' is due in January 2021. I've recently signed for two more thrillers with Corvus Atlantic that will keep me busy until 2023.
I'm is originally from St. Albans in Hertfordshire but have lived at the foot of the Wicklow mountains for more years that I lived in the UK. I've two teenagers, three cats and live in a 200-year-old cottage with an occasional poltergeist who moves things at the most inconvenient moments.
