I am a Finn living in Hertfordshire with my two dogs. When I am not writing, editing or plotting, I work as an accountant and train and compete with my young Australian Shepherd.

My debut novel, Fallible Justice, was published by Louise Walters Books in November 2018 and it began my Wilde Investigations series. The sequel, Echo Murder, will be released in June 2019 and the third instalment, Roots of Corruption, in March 2020.

Because I plan meticulously, I've never yet ended up in a situation where I don't know where the story will go next. Rather, if I'm struggling to write, it's usually because I'm too busy or tired. That's when I have to look at my priorities and make changes. (less)

Because I write paranormal detective stories, only my imagination is the limit when it comes to the stories and the settings. My latest work took me to the land of the Fey, and I was like a kid in a candy shop. It's times like that when writing isn't work, it's just fun!(less)

The Dig Street Festival is a thoughtful and at times bizarre examination of the human existence. Although there were times I struggled with suspension of belief, the situational comedy had me chuckling out loud. Walsh is, without a doubt, a master of ...more

Bird Box is one of those books where I saw the film first and upon finding out that it was based on a novel, I then sought that out. I’m not a fan of horror, especially horror films, but I had heard enough about the filming and production that the fi ...more
