I write psychological thrillers. My influences include writers such as Stephen King, Ira Levin, Ruth Rendell, Ian McEwan, Val McDermid and Donna Tartt and movies like Rosemary's Baby, Single White Female, Fatal Attraction and anything in which scary things happen to ordinary people.

The Magpies is the book that changed my life because it sold so well and allowed me to become a full-time writer, so that one will always be special. But I think Follow You Home is a better book.

Of my co-written books, my favourite is From the Cradle. (less)

Isabel’s life seemed perfect. Successful business, beautiful house, adoring husband. And then she was dead.

"
This is not the first I've read of Mark Edwards' books ... but it is the best! Reminds me a bit of a horror story within a horror story .. although this isn't really a horror story at all.

“She took out an Ian McEwan book, flicked through it and said, ‘I love this. I can’t bear people who don’t read. I think they must have something wrong with them, don’t you?’ ‘I guess so.’ ‘Books, music, art, films.’ She held up her glass. ‘Good wine. It’s what life’s all about.’ I held up my own glass. ‘To books, music, art, films and wine.”
Mark Edwards, Because She Loves Me

“Every dark space felt threatening, as if it contained and concealed something horrifying. My imagination filled in the details that my eyes couldn’t see, not just memories from a hundred horror movies and books, but something deeper in my brain, a line that stretched back thousands of years, fear of the dark woods hard-wired into me.”
Mark Edwards, Follow You Home

“We used to say that we loved each other but, looking back, I think we said it more because we felt we should.”
Mark Edwards, Because She Loves Me
