Gaynor Torrance lives near Cardiff with her husband and their rescue cat, Cleo. The area is the setting for her Detective Inspector Jemima Huxley Crime Thriller series of books. Like Gaynor, Jemima has a bachelor’s degree in psychology. Though, apart from them both having a keen interest in human behaviour, that’s where any similarity ends.

When she’s not writing or glued to her Kindle, Gaynor enjoys listening to music, playing the piano, walking, travelling, and eating far too much chocolate.

Hi Helen,
I'm pleased to have you as a friend, and thanks for getting in touch with me. I started writing in 2010. I only have one book published at the moment, Revenge, but I have others which are complete. I am currently submitting my latest, Step Up or Die to some literary agents, but it's a slow process. (less)

I completed 'Revenge' (the first book in the DI Jemima Huxley thriller series) back in 2013 and initially self-published it. Last year it was picked up by Sapere Books, who liked it so much that they are going to publish the series.(less)

Couldn't put it down. It's weird when you live close to the area and all the names of places that you have visited some of them"

“was”
Gaynor Torrance, The Leighton Meadow Killings

“The ritual had been far harder than he'd ever imagined, and the moment of death was almost a relief.”
Gaynor Torrance, Revenge

“Religious establishments made her feel uneasy. The very idea of surrendering to such an ideology seemed nothing more than mass brainwashing. It defied logic yet appeared to offer comfort and hope to people who desired a sense of belonging.”
Gaynor Torrance, The Leighton Meadow Killings
