Lindsay Ashford

Nominated Title: Strange Blood

Publisher: Honno

'Strange Blood' - review
Lindsay Ashford: Author

Former BBC Journalist Lindsay Ashford put her degree in Criminology to good use in writing her first novel, Frozen, having first taken a course at the Arvon Foundation to gain enough confidence to write a novel.

Since becoming published in 2003, Lindsay’s career has marched on from strength to strength, as indicated by the Theakston Old Peculier Award nomination with only her second novel, Strange Blood. A third in the Megan Rhys profiler series, Death Studies, released in July 2006, is the latest and eagerly awaited addition.

Lindsay, who grew up in Wolverhampton where the Megan Rhys books are set, was the first woman to graduate from Queens College Cambridge in its 800 year history, before beginning work firstly with the BBC and then as a Freelance Journalist for a number of national magazines and newspapers.

Her work has received glowing reviews from, amongst other, The Guardian, who have called Lindsay “a worthy new talent” in liking her work to that of Patricia Cornwell.
