Dark, compelling and beautifully twisty ... have you read Isabel yet? In 2018, BEAUTIFUL LIARS shot to #3 in Amazon UK's Hot New Psychological Thriller Releases, while LITTLE SISTER was shortlisted in the 2018 Dead Good Reader Awards. Her next novel is LAKE CHILD, a dark and haunting thriller set in a remote valley town in the heart of Norway's ancient fjords (out September 2019).
Isabel Ashdown was born in London and grew up on the Sussex coast. Her writing career took off ten years ago, after she won first prize in a national novel opening competition judged by Fay Weldon, the late Sir John Mortimer and thriller writer Michael Ridpath. The novel, GLASSHOPPER, went on to be twice named as one of the best books of the year, and Isabel now writes full-time alongside her work at the University of Chichester, mentoring students as a Royal Literary Fund Fellow.
For the past two years she has hosted the creative writing workshop in the Orion Incident Room of the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival in Harrogate, always a full-house event!
