As the daughter of a former Metropolitan police officer, married to a retired police officer and a serving police officer myself, I set out to write accurate and fast moving crime fiction.
I have been writing fiction since October 2011 and crime was my first choice because of both my love of the genre and my police background. Most of my nineteen-year police career has been spent in CID, with ten years in the Serious Crime Directorate dealing mostly with murders and other serious investigations.
An extract from my debut novel, Never Forget, won the Writer's Retreat Competition in 2012 and was published by Myriad Editions in July 2013. It has since been optioned for a TV drama. Remember, Remember, the next book in the DC Nina Foster series was published in August 2014.
I have recently signed a two-book deal with Simon and Schuster and my next book is to be published by them in 2016.
