Beverley Jones


Beverley Jones is a former journalist and police press officer. She started her journalism career with Trinity Mirror newspapers, writing stories for The Rhondda Leader and The Western Mail, before becoming a broadcast journalist with BBC Wales Today TV news, based in Cardiff. She has worked on all aspects of crime reporting (as well as community news and features) producing stories and content for newspapers and live TV.

Most recently Bev worked as a press officer for South Wales Police, dealing with the media and participating in criminal investigations, security operations and emergency planning. She channels these experiences of ‘true crime,’ and her insight into the murkier side of human nature, into her dark, psychological thrillers, Lies You Tell, Make Him Pay, Fear the Dark, Where She Went, Halfway and Wilderness, recently optioned as a six part TV series by Firebird Pictures.

Her novels are all published by Little Brown, and are set in and around South Wales (and, in the case of Wilderness, New York City, California and Arizona, USA).

Her next novel The Beach House, a psychological mystery set in the Pacific Northwest of the USA, is due for release in June 2021.
