Murder Ink - Sarah Ward

Sarah Ward is an online book reviewer whose blog, Crimepieces, reviews the best of current crime fiction published around the world. She has also reviewed for the Eurocrime and Crimesquad websites and is a judge for The Petrona Award for translated Scandinavian crime novels.
After years of writing professionally in a government agency, she moved to Greece to teach English as a Foreign Language. It was in the Athenian heat, homesick for the English countryside, that she started the crime novel she’d always wanted to write. Sarah now lives in rural Derbyshire where her debut novel, In Bitter Chill, is set.
The Library recently acquired her novel.  Click here to visit her website.
