Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Charlie signed with Darkstroke Books in May 2020 and The Cry of the Lake is her debut novel.

Charlie lives in the UK and is very much a morning person. In fact, she likes nothing more than committing a fictional murder before her first coffee of the day. She studied Theology at Worcester College, Oxford and now lives in a Leicestershire village with her husband, three teenagers, golden retriever and tortoise.

She is currently working on her next novel 'The Serpent Noose'. A dead body is found down a sealed up priest hole within the grounds of Collyhurst Convent; a sixth-form boarding school for girls run by nuns. It is the charred remains of Mother Agnes who went missing ten years ago and is found with an emerald cross stuffed inside her jaw. DS Cally Simmonds is sent in, undercover, to investigate. She must puzzle her way through well-dressed scarecrows, bonfires, emerald crosses and fallen oak trees before she breaks the wall of silence and discovers exactly why Agnes was killed and by whom.
