Sub-genre: , , ,

Daniel Cole (@DanielColeBooks) is the Sunday Times bestselling author of the RAGDOLL trilogy, which has now been published in over thirty-five countries and for which he was shortlisted for the prestigious CWA John Creasey New Blood Dagger (he didn’t win though [or even come second for that matter] but is in no way bitter about it). A TV adaption starring Lucy Hale was released in 2021, and his first standalone novel, MIMIC, came out in 2022. JACKDAW, the first book in a brand-new series is due for release in October 2023.  

He has worked as a Paramedic, an animal protection officer, and with the beach lifeguards, but for the past few years has been describing himself on paperwork as a “full-time writer”.  He lives on the south coast of England and divides his time between the beach and the forest.
