After working as an actress and in broadcasting, Hilary wrote her first novel, In Love and Friendship, which became a New York Times bestseller and was translated into seventeen languages. She continued writing sagas and suspense romance before turning to psychological suspense and – with the body count in her books steadily growing – to full-blown thrillers.
The first of her Sam Becket mysteries was Mind Games (now an e-book for Orion’s The Murder Room), and several years passed, publishing one stand-alone title a year, before the second Becket, Last Run, came along and the series began in earnest. Her latest book – her 25th – Whirlwind, a tale of revenge and love over a New England Christmas, has just been published by Severn House. All her titles are available on Kindle.
Hilary lives with her husband in London.
