Sub-genre: , ,

I was midway through writing my 3rd WW2 espionage thriller, when I got a dog – a miniature dachshund with a massive personality – and discovered the dog park and the dog community. It didn’t take long for me to wonder… what if two people are out walking their dogs and find a dead body? What if it’s someone they know? I followed the trail of “What Ifs” as THE DOG PARK DETECTIVES took shape. (While murder isn’t a walk in the park, in this case, the research literally was!)

Inspired by my hound and our local East London dog park, I’m now working on BONE OF CONTENTION, the second book in the series.

Writing as Mara Timon, I’m also the author of CITY OF SPIES (shortlisted for CrimeFest’s debut of the year) and its sequel, RESISTANCE.
