Dark Edge Press Sign New Crime Author Ann Bloxwich
'When our commissioning editor, Michael, handed me Ann's manuscript, and said, "You've got to read this!" I knew we'd found someone with talent,' says Louise Mullins, Publishing Director of Dark Edge Press. 'It's hard to believe Ann hasn't been snapped up already. She has, not only a knack for telling a good story, but a real sense of how people behave. We've signed Ann with a three-book deal, the first of which will be published this summer. And we cannot wait to get it in the hands of readers. The title is written in an original authorial voice - expertly may I add - and involves a unique spin on the genre, and some diverse characters.'
In her own words: Ann is a short, tattooed, married mother of four grown-up children. Her passions include books, cats and rock music. She started writing around ten years ago, but struggled until she discovered a crime writing workshop, called Crime and Publishment, established by author, Graham Smith, in Gretna Green. The support and encouragement she received from her peers, on the course, was fantastic and it prompted her to move with her family from the West Midlands to Scotland, so she could concentrate on her writing. She has had short stories published in two anthologies, titled Happily Never After and Wish You Weren't Here, with all profits going to local charities.
We are absolutely thrilled to welcome Ann to our list of authors and look forward to working with her.
