Alex North
Alex North is the pseudonym of a prolific, award-winng crime writer. His first novel, The Whisper Man, was an international top ten bestseller and has been optioned for film. His most recent novel, The Shadow Friend, deals with the insidious, murderous effects of a lucid dreaming cult among a group of troubled teenage outsiders. Alex was born in Leeds, where he lives with his wife and son.
Nell Pattison
After studying English at university, Nell Pattison became a teacher and specialised in Deaf education. She has been teaching in the Deaf community for 13 years in both England and Scotland, working with students who use British Sign Language. Nell began losing her hearing in her twenties, and now wears hearing aids. She lives in North Lincolnshire with her husband and son. Nell is the author of novels The Silent House and Silent Night, featuring BSL interpreter Paige Northwood.
Russ Thomas
Russ Thomas was born in Essex, raised in Berkshire and now lives in Sheffield. After a few 'proper' jobs (among them: pot-washer, optician's receptionist, supermarket warehouse operative, call-centre telephonist, and storage salesman) he discovered the joys of bookselling, where he could talk to people about books all day. His highly-acclaimed debut novel, Firewatching, is the first in the DS Adam Tyler series and published in February 2020. Nighthawking, the second book in the series, will publish in February 2021.
