Alison James

I've been a fan of crime writing and thrillers since I was in my teens, and I still love reading new crime fiction.

I studied criminal law and worked for several years as a paralegal on serious crime cases including rape, murder and fraud. This meant my working day involved liaising with police detectives and watching them solve cases. It was only some years later, after a stint writing for TV drama, that I realised my experience working in crime qualified me to write police procedurals myself.

After a few attempts at coming up with characters, Detectives Rachel Prince and Mark Brickall came into being, and their first three cases will all be published in 2018. There'll be more of them to come in 2019, so watch this space!
