Sabina Manea was born in Romania and grew up in the South of England. From the moment she picked up her first Agatha Christie novel as a teenager, she was hooked, and a passionate love affair with murder mysteries was born. After years in corporate law, Sabina finally plucked up the courage to follow her childhood dream and write the kind of crime fiction she would love to read – fun, classic style whodunnits in contemporary settings.
Sabina is currently writing a series of mysteries set in North London and featuring ex-lawyer turned detective Lucia Steer, a very modern heroine with a flair for trouble and eagle eyes that knock spots off Kentish Town CID.
Sabina lives in rural Nottinghamshire with her husband, three children and an ever changing assortment of animals.
