Carol Smith

Having worked for years as a literary agent, looking for talent and directing careers, I finally stumbled on the right idea with which to launch myself as a writer – contemporary thrillers loosely based on the concept of “What Would Happen If…?”

I wrote the first one in just nine months at weekends. It was sold on auction both here and elsewhere and, bingo, my new career was up and running. DARKENING ECHOES was published in 1995 (American title: FRIENDS FOR LIFE) since when I have written fifteen more, most of them under my real name.
