I write crime fiction, and I spy on people in real life for ideas and inspiration…
In 2019 I appeared as a Crime in the Spotlight author at Bloody Scotland.
- TOXIC is my first crime novel, introducing DI Donna Davenport, and was shortlisted in the Yeovil Literary Prize before publication by ThunderPoint Publishing Ltd.
- The sequel, SHADOWS, was published in October 2017, and
- The explosive finale to the trilogy, RUN, was published in October 2019.
You can find out more on my Amazon author page, here.
To hear more about TOXIC, its background and how the characters and storyline were developed, listen in here to my chat with Shirley Whiteside on Booked on Pulse 98.4. It’s about an hour long, so grab a cuppa and relax.
I have appeared at crime writing festivals Newcastle Noir, Crime at the Castle and Literally @ Newbattle, and regularly appear at Noir at the Bar events (including Edinburgh, Newcastle, Dundee and Dunfermline). I also form part of the Dangerous Dames and Murder & Mayhem along with a number of other crime writers, and have appeared at events in libraries and bookstores across Scotland as part of these.
