Emma Styles

Emma Styles writes contemporary Australian noir about young women taking on the patriarchy. She grew up on Whadjuk Noongar Country in Perth, Western Australia and now lives in London where she was born. Emma loves a road trip and once sat out a cyclone on the north west coast of WA in a LandCruiser Troop Carrier. She is less afraid of great white sharks than she should be, and hopeless at surfing.
Emma has an MA in crime fiction from the University of East Anglia. Her debut novel, No Country for Girls, won the Little, Brown UEA Crime Fiction Award in 2020 and will be published by Sphere in the UK in July 2022, and by Hachette in Australia and New Zealand in September.

Emma Styles recommends
Crow Moon (2024)
(Martha Strangeways Investigation, book 1)
Suzy Aspley
"A page-turning plot, beautifully realised setting, and characters that are still walking and talking in my head - a compassionate and captivating new voice."
Freeze (2023)
Kate Simants
"Simants gets under the skin of her characters with such humanity yet never fails to deliver the twists and tension. A wild ride of a thriller in an incredible setting."
The Second Stranger (2023)
Martin Griffin
"An impressive debut thriller shot through with a menace that makes its Highlands hotel setting feel like a house of cards. The tension winds ever tighter as the storm strengthens its grip and the cracks start to show - in the illusion of warmth and safety, the mask of the murderer, and the frozen landscape itself."
