Cornish born Malcolm Richards writes dark mysteries and thrillers. After studying for a Bachelor of Arts in Writing at Middlesex University, London, he went on to work as a literacy tutor, a therapeutic teacher of children with emotional and behavioural difficulties, and as a teacher of creative writing. He has also worked as a freelance copywriter and scriptwriter.
When not writing, Malcolm enjoys composing and producing music, cooking up a storm in the kitchen, and spending more and more time in the countryside. He lives in Crystal Palace, London, with his partner Mr Smith, a cat named Sukey, and a fish called Freddy Krueger.
Technically, Steve was born a London cockney, until the age of five when a move to the suburbs taught him to 'talk posh'. Although a voracious reader since his early years, it wasn't until reading poet Laurie Lee's autobiography "Cider with Rosie" at the age of 15 that he felt spurred into becoming a writer. He has spent the last twenty years editing and writing for computer magazines, while crafting poetry and an impressive back catalogue of fiction.
Peter was born in Derry, Northern Ireland. He was first published in the Simon & Schuster anthology, Children of the Troubles, at the age of 17 and has since been crafting thrillers that blend clever plots with big emotions.

I suspect JJ may also have superpowers because I'm exhausted from just writing all that up...
Australian author Catherine is a huge crime fiction fan, and her love of the genre is evident throughout her gripping Sydney-set 'Dark Series'. Catherine also loves Netflix and her dog (a winning combination if you ask me), and enjoys the self-confessed hermit/writer lifestyle with occasional trips out into the real world for some vitamin D.
Lucy English is very busy. Not only does she work as both a sociologist and as a writer while racing back and forth between speaking engagements and her Saint Louis, Missouri home, she's also the mother of two teenage boys (I was one of those once - Lucy, you have my sympathy). She has published three books in the Penny Wade Mysteries series, is trying to write a middle grades fiction book, and is working on a non-fiction book on holism.
Liz Hedgecock spends much of her time hopping between the nineteenth and twenty-first centuries, murdering people. To be fair, she does usually clean up after herself. When not concocting mysteries, Liz lives quietly in Cheshire with her family. That’s her story, anyway, and she’s sticking to it.

She's had short stories published in various anthologies and her musings have appeared in publications like The Huffington Post and The Frisky. She's the author of the White Rabbit Trilogy and the presenter/producer of the Storytime With Desiree podcast, where she chats with her favourite authors.
