At Red Dog, we love a good cosy mystery. So this seems like the perfect time to let you know our plans for expanding our Cosy Crime division for your reading pleasure. Joining the hugely successful Soho Noir series by T.S. Hunter and the Mydworth Mysteries series by Matthew Costello and Neil Richards, we are thrilled to have the print rights to the bestselling Cherringham Cosy Mystery series, also by Richards and Costello.
Murder on Thames is the first in the series, and it hits the shelves today – 12 June 2020. We will be publishing a new Cherringham Cosy Mystery every 3 weeks. Yes, every 3 weeks. So you will never be far from your next cosy read.
But that's not all. We have a host of new authors joining our cosy team. And the first of those is the delightful Alison O'Leary. We've signed Alison for the first three in her series of cosy crimes. Street Cat Blues is the first in the series, and will be hitting your shelves in September. For now, meet Alison, and welcome her to the Red Dog fireplace.
Alison O'Leary was born in London and spent her teenage years in Hertfordshire where she spent large amounts of time reading novels, watching daytime television and avoiding school. Failing to gain any qualifications in science whatsoever, the dream of being a forensic scientist collided with reality when a careers teacher suggested that she might like to work in a shop. She didn't mean Harrods. Later studying law, Alison decided to teach rather than go into practice and has spent many years teaching mainly criminal law and criminology to young people and adults.
She enjoys reading crime novels, doing crosswords, and drinking wine. Not necessarily in that order.
We have more exciting announcements to come in this area, so stay tuned...
