Book news, and an award nomination

I have been meaning to write a blog post for the past few weeks, but life and work seem to have got in the way.

Thank you to everyone who made the launch of The Night Stalker such a big success, and thank you for all of the wonderful messages and reviews you have been sending about the Erika Foster books. I am so pleased you are enjoying the second Erika Foster novel, and I have loved reading each and every one of your messages!


Writing, with my little writing buddy…

I am in the middle of writing the third Erika Foster story. I would love to tell you all about it, but I am SWORN to secrecy. All I can reveal is that Erika is once again tasked with solving a complex and mysterious case, and the third book will delve deeper into Erika’s back story and her personal life. I’m expecting it to be published in the autumn, so I will keep you all posted.

I always seem to write the Erika Foster books in opposing seasons. I wrote The Girl in the Ice during a heatwave. The Night Stalker is set during a fictional heatwave, and I wrote it during a blizzard and freezing temperatures. This third book is set in the run up to Christmas, when the cold weather descends, so appropriately I’m writing in the middle of another heat wave!

I’m extremely excited to let you know that The Girl in the Ice is up for Dead Good’s Papercut Award for Best Page Turner at the upcoming Theakstons Old Peculiar Crime Festival!


I heard about the nomination at the end of last week, and was blown away to see I’m nominated alongside some amazing authors including Robert Galbraith and Val McDermid!


What’s great is that this is a public vote, and you the readers can decide the winner. Winning this would mean so much to me, and it would be great to have your support. If you enjoyed The Girl in the Ice, all you have to do is vote! You can click here to vote now!

Thank you so much, and I will blog again soon with more news.

    I just finished reading The Night Stalker and I loved it…! I love that you have made Erika a normal flesh and blood woman who looks in the mirror and doesn’t always like what she sees,but keeps on going, and the fact she wasn’t going to let her bosses get the better of her….I am looking forward to the next book with great relish….congratulations on your nomination,I am sure there are many more to come…

    Why shouldn’t you be up with Val McDermid? I love both of you because you write about characters that are complicated, and that draw you into their lives. I love Erika and Tony Hill, they are people too I feel have enriched my life and many other people’s lives.
