Barbara is an Amazon, Kobo, and USA Today best-selling author of psychological crime thrillers, including Flowers for the Dead, The Perfect Friend and The Darkest Lies.
She was raised in Lincolnshire, and the haunting atmosphere of the fens filters into much of her writing.
Having spent over twenty years as a national newspaper and magazine journalist, she’s interviewed the real victims of crime – and also those who have carried those crimes out. She’s fascinated by creating realistic, complex characters, and taking them apart before the readers’ eyes in order to discover just how much it takes to push a person over a line.
