Sam is originally from St. Albans in Hertfordshire but now lives in Ireland, at the foot of the Wicklow mountains in a 200-year-old-cottage with several cats and an occasional poltergeist who moves things at the most inconvenient moments. Her debut novel, Little Bones, launched the Cat Connolly trilogy and was a runaway bestseller.
Moving away from police procedurals to write psychological thrillers for Corvus Atlantic, the first, Keep Your Eyes On Me, went straight to No 1 in January 2020. All Sam’s books have been bestsellers and she has been shortlisted for Irish Crime Novel of the Year three times.
Sam is also writing YA crime for Gill Books and Something Terrible Happened Last Night, her YA debut was published in May 2023.
