Crime-writer Marnie Riches grew up on a rough estate in Manchester, aptly within sight of the dreaming spires of Strangeways prison. She swapped those for the spires of Cambridge University, gaining a Masters degree in Modern & Medieval Dutch and German. She has been a punk, a trainee rock star, a pretend artist, a property developer and professional fundraiser. In her spare time, she likes to run, renovate houses and paint. Oh, and drinking. She likes a drink. And eating. She likes that too. Especially in exotic destinations. Having authored the first six books of HarperCollins Children’s Time-Hunters series, her George McKenzie crime thrillers were inspired, in part, by her own youth and time spent in The Netherlands as a student. Her debut, The Girl Who Wouldn’t Die, won a Dead Good Reader Award in 2015. Watch out for the latest thrilling installment, The Girl Who Had No Fear in November 2016.

Marnie’s brand new hard-hitting series about Manchester will also be available in all good bookshops in March 2017.
