Imogen Robertson

I grew up in Darlington in the North East of England, studied Russian and German at Cambridge and spent a year in Russia in a city called Voronezh during the early nineties. Lots of vodka, lots of falling over in the snow. Before I started writing full-time I directed children's television, film and radio. There is less sticky paper and glitter in my life now. Shame. I decided to try and make a career out of writing after I won the Telegraph's 'First thousand words of a novel' competition in 2007 with the opening scene of Instruments of Darkness, my first book.  I've written six novels; five in the Georgian Westerman and Crowther series and a standalone, Paris Winter. Paris Winter, Island of Bones and Theft of Life have been shortlisted for the Crime Writers' Association Historical Dagger. Since Theft of Life was published, I've co-authored King of Kings with the legendary Wilbur Smith, and Liberation the story of WWII SOE operative Nancy Wake, with Darby Kealey under our joint pseudonym Imogen Kealey. My political thriller with Tom Watson arrives on bookshelves in October 2020. I love co-authoring - it reminds me of the creative energy of a team I loved while working in TV. I live in London with my husband, cheesemonger and author, Ned Palmer, and am Chair of the Historical Writers' Association
