Chris Barraclough is an award-winning and best-selling crime writer and journalist from the UK.
His debut novel 'Bat Boy' (told from the POV of a blind British boy searching for his father) took him a sweat-inducing four years to write, but the pain was worth it. Bat Boy won the UK Authors Award and was published by the UKA Press, to great critical acclaim. 25% of paperback royalties are donated to the RNIB (so buying a copy makes you a wonderful person), and the Kindle version has just been released.
His fast-paced crime thriller 'Crack', the first in his Twin Towers Estate series, was shortlisted for the Page Turner Prize and SpaSpa Award for Best Psychological Fiction. Soon after came his second novel 'Dead Dogs' - a suspenseful but darkly comic portrayal of a family torn apart by Albania's archaic Blood Feud revenge laws - which was nominated for the Sony Reader Award. His third novel, Devil's In A Different Dress, is out now alongside all six parts of the Twin Towers Estate series and the best-selling Bitch Is Back series.
