Hello and welcome! I am the author of 15 novels, a fact I can't quite believe myself. THE HEIGHTS is my newest - it's a twisty revenge thriller whose narrator, Ellen, has a strange fear of heights known as 'high place phenomenon'. You could say she's my most Hitchcock-inspired character yet! I can't wait for you to read it and share your thoughts. Out now in paperback, THE OTHER PASSENGER (I call it 'commuter noir') was one of the biggest sellers of lockdown (a dubious honour), selling over 250,000 copies in the UK to date. It's my first ever Richard & Judy Book Club pick and was longlisted for the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year Award 2021, which makes me very happy. OUR HOUSE is the book that turned my career around - right when I was about to give up. It won the 2019 British Book Awards Book of the Year - Crime & Thriller and was shortlisted for the Goldsboro Books Glass Bell Award, the Capital Crime Amazon Publishing Best Crime Novel of the Year Award​, and the Audible Sounds of Crime Award. It was also longlisted for the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year Award and the Specsavers National Book Awards. Filming is now complete for a major four-part drama by Red Planet Pictures for ITV, starring Martin Compston as Bram, Tuppence Middleton as Fi and Rupert Penry-Jones as Toby. I couldn't have asked for more, really, and feel so proud that readers are continuing to discover it and recommend it far and wide. A bit about me: I live in a South London neighbourhood not unlike the one in my books, with my husband, teenage daughter, and a fox-red Labrador called Bertie who is the apple of my eye. Books, TV and long walks have been my top sanity savers during recent times. Oh, and wine. Get up-to-date offers by clicking on the yellow 'Follow' button under my pic. For more book news (and doting pictures of Bertie), catch me on Twitter @louise_candlish, on Instagram @louisecandlish or facebook.com/LouiseCandlishAuthor. I'd love to hear from you.
