After being made redundant in 2012, GB started taking her life-long passion for writing
more seriously and looking to sell her work. Specialising in complex, fast-paced crime
novels. Her debut novel, Locked Up, was released in September 2017, Locked In follows
in February 2018, and Locked Down in September 2018.
GB was shortlisted for the 2014 CWA Margery Allingham Short Story Competition with
the story Last Shakes, now available in Last Cut Casebook. She is also a
feature writer and occasional comic book reviewer. Crime novels are her stock
in trade, but she has had success with short stories in various genres including steampunk,
horror, erotica and general fiction.
With bills to pay, she’s back working as a systems architect by day, a freelance
fiction editor and keen writer of an evening and weekend. GB really needs to learn to sleep.
Originally from Kent, GB moved to South Wales as a supposed first step on a year around
the world. Then she met a guy. Kept the guy, kissed the travel goodbye. Knowing that
the best way to travel is by book anyway, she has always read, always written. GB now has
two grown-up children, the world’s most imperious cat, a house full of books and a hard
drive full of manuscripts (though some will never be allowed out of a locked basement).
