About Mark Edwards

Mark Edwards writes psychological thrillers in which scary things happen to ordinary people. He is inspired by writers such as Stephen King, Ira Levin, Ruth Rendell and Linwood Barclay. 

Mark grew up on the south coast of England and started writing in his twenties, teaming up with Louise Voss to co-write Killing Cupid and Catch Your Death, which topped the UK bestseller chart in 2011.

His solo thrillers, The Magpies and Because She Loves Me were also No.1 bestsellers in the UK. Like these previous novels his fourth solo book, Follow You Home, was inspired by a real-life experience, in this case a ‘trip from hell’ around Europe.

He lives in the West Midlands, England, with his wife, their three children and a ginger cat.
