Biography
I write gritty, crime fiction that focuses on the 'why'dunnit as well as the 'who'. I worked for a housing association supporting socially excluded men and women with their return into society, which provided me with a lot of inspiration. If you like hard-boiled crime writer Stuart Macbride then my Scottish crime series is for you. Fans of Richard Montanari-style police procedurals should try my Salford detective series. Like living on the edge? Why not try both...

A PLACE OF SAFETY is the second of my Salford crime series and opens with a drive-by shooting that leaves a witness in fear for her life. DS Coupland and Moreton return to investigate what looks like a turf war gone wrong when a local gang does everything it can to cover the killer's tracks. Why is a young woman who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time such a threat to them? Or as Coupland suspects, is there more to their guilt than meets the eye?

TRUTH LIES WAITING, the first in my Scottish crime fiction series introduces anti-hero Davy Johnson as his life is thrown into turmoil when a killer strikes in Edinburgh's underbelly - framing him in the process. TRUTH LIES WAITING will tackle your perception of good v. evil forever.

FRAGILE CORD is the first in my Salford Detective series introducing Alex Moreton and Kevin Coupland as they investigate the murder-suicide of a mother and her son. Alex is under pressure from her partner to have another child, but they're happy as they are, aren't they? Coupland's wife is behaving oddly, is he right to be worried? A PLACE OF SAFETY, the second in the series is due for release in November 2014.

Born in Manchester, England, I started work selling ladies knickers (5 for a pound) on Grey Mare Lane market. This provided a natural springboard for my next role - selling investments for HSBC (very apt of course, as both are inclined to go down as well as up). It was whilst working at the bank that I met my husband David, pursuing him mercilessly until he agreed to remove the restraining order and marry me, producing two wonderful sons.

Most evenings I can be found walking the family dog on the beach near our home in East Lothian, Scotland. You can find out more on my website www.emmasalisbury.com and I can be found on twitter @emmasauthor.
