The latest bestselling, gripping gangland crime thriller for summer 2020
Jacqui Rose is a novelist who hails from South Yorkshire. Jacqui first came to appreciate the power of the written word when as a child she charged her classmates a packet of sherbet dips to write their essays for them. Adopted at a young age and always a daydreamer, she felt isolated growing up in a small mining village in South Yorkshire and it was her writing which kept her company. Sent to boarding school as a teenager, it was there she discovered her love for acting. After leaving school she studied to be an actress and started teaching drama voluntarily and writing workshops for prisoners, ex-offenders and the homeless, helping them develop and create their own plays but it was several years before Jacqui herself wrote again. Jacqui's introduction back to writing was when she began to write and perform stand-up comedy and although this was very short lived it brought back the joy and freedom as well as the fun which writing gave to her.
