Joy Ellis is the no. 1 best-selling author of the Jackman & Evans and DI Nikki Galena series, topping the Amazon Top 100 week to week. She began writing crime thrillers during a writer's retreat in the Greek Islands and hasn't looked back. Now a full-time writer, Joy and her partner, Jacqueline, a retired police officer, call the Lincolnshire Fens home, along with their two Springer spaniels. Inspired by the remoteness and airy beauty of the marshlands, Joy sets her crime thrillers in the misty fens, which lends itself so well to murder.
