Erin Kelly is the Sunday Times bestselling author of He Said/She Said, about a couple whose lives are torn apart when they witness a rape at a music festival. Her debut novel, The Poison Tree, was a major ITV drama and a Richard & Judy summer read and longlisted for the CWA John Creasey Dagger Award; of it, Stephen King said ‘I wish I’d written it’. In 2014 Erin was chosen to write the novelisation of the Bafta-winning series Broadchurch and her other standalone psychological thrillers, The Burning Air, The Sick Rose and The Ties That Bind were all critically acclaimed.
