Susie Steiner

I'm the author of three novels, including Missing, Presumed which introduced detective Manon Bradshaw to readers. She's back in a new case, Persons Unknown. I'm currently working on a third Manon installment.
I'm a former Guardian journalist. I started my writing life as a news reporter, first on a local paper (school fetes! Council planning meetings!) and then on The Daily Telegraph, the Times moving to features on the Guardian. I joined the Guardian staff in 2001 and was a commissioning editor on the paper for 11 years.
My first novel, Homecoming, was published by Faber & Faber in 2013. Described as 'truly exceptional' by The Observer, it tells the story of a Yorkshire farming family and in particular the sons' struggle to separate from their parents to become their own people. You can read reviews here: http://www.susiesteiner.co.uk/homecoming/
Missing, Presumed was an New York Times Book Review pick and one of the ten best mysteries of 2016 in the Wall Street Journal. It was a Guardian book of the year and has been shortlisted for Theakstons crime novel of the year in the UK.
Val McDermid said of Persons Unknown, 'I loved it. It's like walking on quicksand for detective and reader alike.'
I live with my husband and children in London.
