Sub-genre: , , , ,

Liz Lawler had a 20-year career as a nurse and later became a general manager of a five star hotel, followed by a stint as a flight attendant with British Airways.

Born in Kent, Liz was part of a large family having 11 siblings. She discovered the solitude of writing, after coming home from a busy nightshift in the emergency department, was a place where she could step away from an emotionally and physically demanding job.

She now lives in Bath with her family and writes in any place that has a quiet space.

Her debut psychological thriller, Don’t Wake Up, became a bestseller with number 1 on Apple and in the Kindle top 10, and has been published by Harper in the US and translated into 12 other languages.

She is the author of five standalone thrillers:

Don’t Wake Up (2017)

I’ll Find You (2019)

The Next Wife (2020)

The Silent Mother (2021)

The Nurse’s Secret (2022)

Her most recent, My Husband’s Lies, will be published on November 20th 2023.
