Julia writes Domestic Noir – a term she coined to describe her dark and twisty psychological thrillers. Her four books – Cuckoo, Every Vow You Break, Tarnished and The Long Fall – are published in the UK by Headline, and the fifth – Her Husband’s Lover – is out in January 2017. She likes particularly to write about the terrible things we do to each other in the name of love, and takes inspiration from news stories, gossip and car crash TV. Humans never fail to surprise her. She lives in Brighton with her husband, her youngest son and two boomeranging grown up children, and writes in a cosy shed at the bottom of her garden, aided and abetted by her two cats, #Keith and #Sandra, who she is trying to get trending on Twitter.
