Marnie Riches's picture

Marnie Riches

Marnie Riches grew up on a rough estate in Manchester, aptly within sight of the dreaming spires of Strangeways prison. She swapped those for the spires of Cambridge University, gaining a Masters degree in Modern & Medieval Dutch and German. She has been a punk, a trainee rock star, a pretend artist, a property developer and professional fundraiser. In her spare time, she likes to run, renovate houses and paint. Oh, and drinking. She likes a drink. And eating. She likes that too. Especially in exotic destinations.

Having authored the first six books of HarperCollins Childrens Time-Hunters series, her George McKenzie crime thrillers for adults were inspired, in part, by her own youth and time spent in The Netherlands as a student. She also writes contemporary womens fiction.

The Birthday Girl (2023)
(Mallory Dawson Crime Thriller, book 1)
Sarah Ward
"The Birthday Girl is a satisfying contemporary page-turner with more than a whiff of Christie's Golden Age locked-room mysteries about it. Compelling reading!"
The Other Side of Night (2022)
Adam Hamdy
"An elegantly-written and compelling genre-bender of a story, which left me thinking about it long after I'd read the last page. It is destined for the big screen!Congratulations Adam!"
The Redeemer (2022)
(Shanna Regan, book 1)
Victoria Goldman
"Goldman cleverly intertwines the dark secrets held behind the closed doors of suburbia with the tradition and history of a culture seen too infrequently in crime fiction. An engaging and refreshing read!"
