Sam Carrington lives in Devon with her husband, two border terriers and a cat. She has three adult children and a new grandson! She worked for the NHS for fifteen years, during which time she qualified as a nurse. Following the completion of a psychology degree she went to work for the prison service as an Offending Behaviour Programme Facilitator. Her experiences within this field inspired her writing. She left the service to spend time with her family and to follow her dream of being a novelist. SAVING SOPHIE, her debut psychological thriller, published in September 2016.

As you work your way through Saving Sophie your question *should* be answered - there is explanation as to why Karen is afraid to leave the house. Hopefully all the loose ends will be tied up for you. Hope you enjoy it, and thank you for reading it!
All my best,

Thank you for your question :) I have really enjoyed writing the books so far as stand alones but with continuing characters. Bad Sister introduced psychologist Connie Summers and she is a main character in One Little Lie as well - alongside the police duo DI Lindsay Wade and DS Mack - but book four (out next year) does not follow Connie Summers and is completely stand alone with all new characters. However, I love Connie, Lindsay and Mack and feel sure that they will return!(less)

THE OPEN HOUSE cover reveal!

I’m delighted to share the cover of THE OPEN HOUSE – my sixth psychological suspense novel!





What do you think?

I love the yellow door – slightly ajar – I think it creates a wonderful sense of menace! And then, of course, there’s the tag line…

Here’s the blurb:





Everyone’s welcome. But not everyone leaves…
