Very excited to announced that I've set up a new events collective called Killer Women with fellow crime writer MJ McGrath (killerwomen.org). There are 15 female crime writers in the group, and together we'll be hosting all sorts of exciting new debates, workshops, interviews, and much more. Please visit the website and sign up to our newsletter to find out more. In the meantime, here's a story about us in the Independent.

I've had my head down the past four months finishing book four, which I'm delighted to say my editor likes. Edits on it start on that next week, and it will be published in the UK in Autumn, and in the USA in 2016. I'm very excited about this book. For one reason, it's set in Scotland where I come from, and it's been fun staying with family in Glasgow and Edinburgh for research, and immersing myself back in the voice and settings of my childhood.

It's a psychological thriller, again, but this time involves a criminal investigation. A very strange death close to home sends Edinburgh-based photojournalist Grace off on an unexpected journey into dangerous places, while her colleagues in the city wrangle with the mystery of two more bodies with no apparent connection to each other.

In the meantime, I've also embarked on a very exciting crime events project with another crime writer which we'll launch in March. Watch this space!

 

A wonderful night at the paperback launch of The Hidden Girl in Muswell Hill Books in London. Here I am with my lovely editor Trisha Jackson. Thanks to all the friends, family and authors who came to celebrate with me. :)
