Crime fiction was not what Helen Forbes expected to write. As a single parent and mature law student, she used her limited spare time to write contemporary and historical Scottish fiction.
It was a chance remark at a writing club some years later that led to her debut crime novel, In the Shadow of the Hill, featuring Detective Sergeant Joe Galbraith, and a plot described in one newspaper review as having ‘more twists and turns than the road to the isles, making it impossible to put down.’
The novel and characters proved popular with readers, leading to the recent publication of a second book in the DS Joe Galbraith series, Madness Lies. Helen has now taken to crime with a passion, recently completing a psychological thriller, Deception. Helen will talk about her novels, the influences that turned her to crime, and how she manages to balance a demanding legal career with the life of a published author
