About the Author
Carolyn Mahony grew up in North London, the youngest of three children. She has written for as long as she can remember and her teenage years were filled with half started manuscripts usually based around Georgette Heyer's Regency romances. She continued to scribble away over the years, finishing half a dozen novels along the way - but these never seemed to find their way out of the large drawer into which she stuffed them in her study. Her debut novel, Cry From The Grave, was well received with huge demand for more of the detective team involved. Hence her 2nd book The Jagged Line, which continues on the story of DS Harry Briscombe. People will always ask what gives an author the idea for their book, and for Carolyn it's the, 'What If', scenario. She is drawn to the idea of how dramatically our lives can change in an instant, due to some random happening that could never have been foreseen. But although her topics can be hard hitting, she veers away from darkness in her writing, and likes to have a strong, independent protagonist who wins out in the end. There is also usually, a little bit of romance tucked in there to satisfy her romantic streak - which has never quite gone away!
