Hi, I’m YA crime writer Ellie Marney, and this is a monthly roundup of all the things on my radar – books, writing, new releases, oddspot research, recommendations, book club, as well as general life stuff.

Because of the whole ‘crime writer’ thing, some of my oddspots are a little bloodthirsty and esoteric, but that’s probably why you’re here, right?

I’ve got nine YA crime novels to my name – including the Every series, No Limits, White Night, the Circus Hearts series, and None Shall Sleep – and more books on the way.

I often hold book or swag giveaways, and provide special offers and content for my readers. Occasionally I ask for reviews, but I try not to be too obnoxious about it.

If that sounds like it might be in your wheelhouse, then you’re in the right place.
