Heidi 7_edited.jpg

Heidi Edmundson

Heidi Edmundson was born by the sea and grew up with the legends of Northern Ireland’s spectacular Causeway Coast. Her family ran guesthouses in Portrush, and she spent summer holidays working in the White House Department store and the change box of Barry’s Amusement Arcade.

As a child, she was fascinated by myths and fairy tales of all kinds. She was an avid reader of mystery stories and wanted to be like Nancy Drew when she grew up. Her love of crime fiction continued into adolescence when, one summer, she discovered a box full of Agatha Christie books with the original Fontana covers.

She studied medicine at Dundee University and currently lives in North London where she has been a consultant in Emergency Medicine for over ten years. She is a passionate advocate for staff wellbeing and building positive workplace cultures.

During the COVID pandemic she experienced first-hand the importance of having a daily creative practice to manage stress and anxiety. She originally planned to only write a short story but surprised herself by discovering that she had a lot more to say and she enjoyed creating a crime to solve as much as reading about one. It was the next best thing to being Nancy Drew.

Sue Turbett

Sue Turbett worked in BBC TV News and Current Affairs as a Director and Producer for many years before leaving to set up her own video production business. She now brings her passion for travel, and empowering stories, to life in her debut novel Eagle Sister.

 

Inspired by real-world events and the extraordinary women she has met, Sue’s story-telling centres on themes of self-discovery, resilience, family and loyalty, celebrating the strength of women. She is drawn to narratives where female protagonists grapple with their predetermined paths, overcome adversity, and find strength in unexpected places.

 

Sue lives in Buckinghamshire, and is now working on her second novel, in between hill walking, running, volunteering, cold water swimming and ag foghlaim Gaeilge.

David Algar

David Algar could best be described as a ‘middle class itinerant’, always moving from school to school and place to place. His first degree, from Aberystwyth University, was in Economics and International Relations; forty years later, he completed a second degree in Psychology and Politics. The wandering life included a long career in industry, regularly changing jobs in the nick of time to avoid being found out.


Along the way, he has managed to pick up a wife, two kids and five chickens, three bikes and a kayak, all to be found in a small village in South Buckinghamshire. Writing came late in life, fuelled by the curiosity brought on by being continually on the move: a curiosity for how we live through the chaos in the world, how we use our humanity for good and how we can all – especially men – be immensely silly along the way.


When he’s not writing, or gazing into the middle distance, David is happiest travelling, playing sport or just being badly behaved.
