Introducing Sam Blake

Sam Blake has been writing fiction since her husband set sail across the Atlantic for eight weeks, and she had an idea for a book. Join her Readers’ Club for a glimpse behind the scenes and to get a free e-copy of her ‘addictive thriller’ High Pressure!

Sam is originally from St. Albans in Hertfordshire but now lives in Ireland, at the foot of the Wicklow mountains. Her debut novel ‘Little Bones’  launched the bestselling Cat Connolly trilogy.

Moving away from police procedurals, now writing psychological thrillers for Corvus Atlantic, Sam’s focus is on strong female characters. ‘Keep Your Eyes On Me’ went straight to No 1 in January 2020 and ‘The Dark Room’ hit the bestseller list in January 2021. Staying in the top ten for over a month, The Dark Room was shortlisted for Irish Crime Novel of the Year 2021. Released as a worldwide digital exclusive, ‘High Pressure’ is a bonus spiderweb book linking Sam’s series and standalone books. ‘Remember My Name’ became Sam’s latest No 1 bestseller in January 2022, and has also been shortlisted for Irish Crime Novel of the Year.

Sam lives in a 200-year-old cottage with several cats and an occasional poltergeist who moves things at the most inconvenient moments.
