About Jenny Blackhurst

Jenny grew up in Shropshire thinking that authors were rock stars and that she needed to get a real job. After being made redundant she decided to write a book, then another, then another and at some point writing became her real job. Someone is Lying is her fifth book and she is now unemployable in any other field.
