Erin Kelly

Erin Kelly was born in London in 1976 and grew up in Essex. She read English at Warwick University and began working as a journalist in 1998. Her most recent book, He Said/She Said spent a total of twelve weeks in the Sunday Times Top Ten bestseller lists. Her first novel The Poison Tree became a major ITV drama and a Richard & Judy bestseller, and was longlisted for the 2011 CWA John Creasy Award. The Sick Rose, The Burning Air and The Ties That Bind were all published to critical acclaim and her books have been translated into 25 languages. In 2014, she wrote the novelisation of the BAFTA-winning Broadchurch but sadly did not get to meet David Tennant.

As well as writing fiction Erin continues to work as a journalist and also teaches creative writing. She lives in north London with her husband and daughters. Website
