Scarlett Brade

No credit

Scarlett Brade is the daughter of parents who migrated from the Caribbean to England in the early 1970s. She was born and educated in London.  As a child she spent her summers in Canada, where she developed her love affair with reading. When not writing, Scarlett spends most of her time cooking, drinking fine wines, and entertaining family and friends. The Hive – Scarlett’s first psychological thriller novel – is a disturbingly prescient and terrifically suspenseful revenge thriller for the social media generation.
