About Me

Raised by wolves, Alex Marwood passed her formative years in the lands beyond the Arctic circle, developing pack skills, excellent night vision and an ability to survive on raw protein. Ideally equipped for a life on Fleet Street, she then became a journalist.

Her first novel, The Wicked Girls, was published by Sphere (UK), in 2012 and Penguin (US) in 2013, and achieved widespread acclaim and word-of-mouth international bestsellerdom. It was shortlisted for ITW, Anthony and Macavity awards, was included in Stephen King's Ten Best Books of the Year list and won an Edgar Allen Poe award in 2013.

The Killer Next Door, described by The Sun as "nasty, compelling and original", was published in 2014. It won the Macavity Award for Best Mystery Novel in 2015.

Alex herself is a figment of the imagination of the novelist and sometime journalist Serena Mackesy. If you're interested in a more truthful biog, an FAQ and other books, visit her website, here.
