About the Author

Joy Ellis is the no. 1 best-selling author of the Jackman & Evans and DI Nikki Galena series, topping the Amazon Top 100 week to week. She began writing crime thrillers during a writer’s retreat in the Greek Islands and hasn’t looked back. Now a full-time writer, Joy and her partner, Jacqueline, a retired police officer, call the Lincolnshire Fens home, along with their two Springer spaniels. Inspired by the remoteness and airy beauty of the marshlands, Joy sets her crime thrillers in the misty fens, which lends itself so well to murder.

I was born in Kent but spent most of my working life in London and Surrey. I was an apprentice florist to Constance Spry Ltd, a prestigious Mayfair shop that throughout the Sixties and Seventies teemed with both royalty and ‘real’ celebrities. What an eye-opener for a working-class kid from the Garden of England! I swore then, probably whilst I was scrubbing the floor or making the tea, that I would have a shop of my own one day. It took until the early Eighties, but I did it. Sadly the recession wiped us out, and I embarked on a series of weird and wonderful jobs; the last one being a bookshop manager. Surrounded by books all day, getting to order whatever you liked, and being paid for it! Oh bliss!

And now I live in a village in the Lincolnshire Fens with my partner, Jacqueline, and our four Springer spaniels. I had been writing mysteries for years but never had the time to take it seriously. Now I write full-time, and as my partner is a highly decorated retired police officer; my choice of genre is a no-brainer! I have an on-tap police and judicial consultant, who makes exceedingly good tea!

I have set my crime thrillers here in the misty fens because I sincerely love the remoteness and airy beauty of the marshlands. This area is steeped in superstitions and lends itself so well to murder!

I am now lucky enough to have joined the amazing Joffe Books team of authors and am really enjoying being able to spend time doing what I love... writing!
