Welcome to my official author website

Out now — a new crime thriller

Madelaine had everything she wanted. Friends, a successful film career, and a loving boyfriend.

Then she was dead.

The Worst Lie

The Worst Lie

They thought they’d always be friends, always know each other’s secrets, until murder drove them apart.

When Lexie Wyatt’s close friend Helen is frightened by an unexpected visit from an ex-university flatmate, Lexie is determined to help. She contrives an invitation to a weekend reunion of the group at one of England’s ancient stone circles. While there one of them admits they believe their long-dead friend was murdered.

Digging into the flatmates’ secrets, Lexie discovers they have lied. Could they also have committed murder?

There is another murder at the stone circles, and Lexie uncovers information that may connect the two crimes… and implicate her good friend.

Is someone targeting the former students, or is the killer one of the group?

After a third murder, Lexie is in a race against time to discover the killer before there are more deaths.

If you love crime novels featuring ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances, then you’ll love this gripping tale of secrets, lies and obsession that leads to murder.

Investigating crime fiction from a Kiwi perspective

“…A psychological study of relationships built on lies.

Bickley has an innate understanding of human emotions and motivations, positive and negative and she gives us a study of human behaviour when personal interest is put before the needs of others.

It’s a very good who done it, with twists and layers that will have you guessing to the very end.”
