Gytha Lodge is a multi-award-winning playwright, novelist and writer for video games and screen. She is also a single parent who blogs about the ridiculousness of bringing up a mega-nerd small boy.

She has a profound addiction to tea, crosswords and awful puns. When not writing, she heads up a copywriting team at a global translation firm, where she generally tries to keep all the video-game writing to herself.

She studied English at Cambridge, where she became known quite quickly for her brand of twisty, dark yet entertaining drama. She later took the Creative Writing MA at UEA.

She has signed with Penguin Random House worldwide for the first three books in her crime series featuring DCI Jonah Sheens. She Lies in Wait will be released in J

Do not. Stop. Writing.

I can't say this often enough to sufficient numbers of people. Don't take failure to heart. I've failed many, many times and will do so again. Want to talk through the apparent disaster of a book not selling to publishers? I've been there, and I'm here to tell you it's ok. Honestly.

And if you're ever despairing, talk to other writers. You'll realise that we all have depressing bits in our careers and that it's all about keeping on going. :) (less)

I really loved this one. A gripping, beautifully constructed read that I hated having to put down.

I always love a twin timeline story, and the gradual revelations about what happened to three young girls were done brilliantly.
