Joanna Dodd

Joanna owes her life of crime to Agatha Christie and Murder She Wrote, which she discovered at an impressionable age. She’s been a huge fan of crime fiction ever since. 

She loves a great twist, and is fascinated by decades-old secrets, and toxic friendship and family groups. Her debut psychological thriller features all of these things, and explores the terrifying consequences when those secrets start to unravel. She’s currently working on a second book. 

In the past, she’s been shortlisted for the Crime Writers Association Debut Dagger and the Historical Writers Association Dorothy Dunnett short story award.

When she's not writing, she enjoys acting and spending time with her (lovely and not at all toxic) friends and family. She lives in London.
