Shauna Bickley


Shauna writes crime mysteries for people who love to work out the clues and discover the murderer before the answer is revealed in the final chapters. She also writes contemporary women’s fiction with strong, emotional stories that include family, friendship and love mixed with secrets and a little mystery.

The locations for her books are based on many of the places she’s lived or visited, creating realistic settings from cities, small towns and coastal communities in England, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

If you love romance stories with strong heroines then check out the Clearwater Bay series set in New Zealand. If you like sorting out clues from red herrings you’ll want to read the Lexie Wyatt murder mysteries set in England.

When Shauna isn’t writing (or surfing the internet pretending to do research), you can find her reading, running (or more likely walking), coming up with excuses not to attend Zumba, and trying to find new ways to use the excess fruit from the trees in the garden.

In addition to novels, Shauna also writes short stories and she has had short fiction published in the Awesome Indies Anthology, Bravado, non-fiction articles in The New Writer, and appeared in several competition anthologies.

She was born in England and after a lot of exploring and travelling, now lives in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand, close to some beautiful beaches.shauna-bickley-1-500x802

She’s always happy to talk about creative writing skills, e-publishing or other writing associated topics in workshops or meetings.
