I'm a former journalist who worked for The Western Mail newspaper and BBC Wales Today in Cardiff before becoming a press officer for the police.

My latest novel 'Where She Went' is a dark psychological thriller with a supernatural twist and is due to be published by LittleBrown (Hachette) in March 2017 under the name BE Jones.

I have three other published novels, all psychological thrillers with a contemporary edge. Telling Stories and Holiday Money are published by Cutting Edge Press while Dreamcatcher remains available in the UK online. (published by Yolk Publishing).

Hiya Keith,

My first favourite, after Enid Blyton of course, was Stephen King when I was 14! Scared me fairly silly but what great storytelling. As I got older I developed a penchant for crime with PD James and Ruth Rendell/Barbara Vine at the top of my addiction - I liked the 'psychological' aspects of 'ordinary' people making little decisions leading to terrible consequences - Barbara Vine's 'Fatal Inversion' was a revelation at 16 and at 18, like many people Donna Tartt's Secret History blew me away with it's truly horrible protagonists.

I think I have brought elements of these to my own writing (what, who said anything about stealing??;) ). Now I love Margaret Atwood, Kate Atkinson and have developed a taste for Gillian Flynn. Though I don't write sci-fi I love to read it and my guilty pleasures are Ray Bradbury and Philip K Dick.

Who are your faves, Keith?(less)

If you find a great solution to this problem, let me know! As a keen reader as well as a writer I've found it works well to join a group in a genre you like, that way you will see what the members are reading and reviewing and pick up good hints and recommendations. Most groups also have a thread for authors to plug their new books and post giveaways. Eg I'm a member of the group Psychological Thrillers and I'm now reading Night film by Marissa Pessl on the back of a personal recommendation. You'll find loads of groups on the home page. Enjoy :)(less)

Dear Goodreads friends,

Please come and find me under B E Jones, my new name attached to my new novel Where She Went (see my books above).
I do still use this profile but far less often. Until Goodreads lets me merge my two names under one account, don't be put off - click and friend me on the new one. All book obsessives welcome!
