Joy Ellis grew up in Kent.  She moved to London to take up an apprenticeship at the
legendary Constance Spry Flower Shop in Mayfair before opening her own florists.  
Undaunted by the loss of her business during the 1980s recession, Joy was employed in a series of different occupations before landing a dream job for any bibliophile when she was appointed manager of a book shop.  
Joy now writes full-time and in June her latest novel Five Bloody Hearts made the Amazon Best Sellers list on   She is a 2019 APA Audie Awards finalist in the T
hriller and Suspense
category for her novel Their Lost Daughters. Superbly narrated by Richard Armitage, this second novel in the Jackman and Evans series was described as “a major hit for Audible” and was also short-listed at the British Book Awards (The Nibbies).  

Aline Templeton was born in a small fishing village not far from St Andrews, she now lives in Edinburgh, and with grandchildren in Kent, she never misses the opportunity to travel south – and that’s as well as being CWA Booksellers’ Champion, and at various times a Justice of the Peace, Chair of the Society of Authors in Scotland, and a member of the Scottish Parliament Cross-party group for Media and Culture before it folded.

But books and writing have been her passion since she first realized she could read at the tender age of four. After reading English at Cambridge and teaching for a while, she married, started a family and cut her writing teeth on freelance articles and stories, all the while working on the first book. An interest in psychology and the hidden, dark side of human nature drew her to crime fiction – and the rest is history.
