Born a Yorkshire lass, Caroline studied Law at the University of Manchester and stayed over the border. Caroline was a divorce and professional indemnity lawyer and instigated her jottings when she deserted the law to bring up her lovely daughters. In addition to her short story collection, Watching Horsepats Feed the Roses, Caroline has had dark twisty short stories and poems published in a variety of literary magazines and anthologies. Caroline likes to write about secrets, betrayal and lies, hidden crime and ‘what goes on behind closed doors’. Her debut ‘domestic noir’ novel, Beneath the Skin, also known as The Wife’s Secret, was published by Avon HarperCollins in October 2017 and My Husband’s Lies followed on 17th May 2018.
