ABOUT ME

Natasha%20Boydell%20Headshot_edited.jpg

I'm the author of The Missing Husband and The Woman Next Door.

I've wanted to be a writer since I was old enough to hold a pencil. Over time my stories have evolved from princesses and unicorns to missing people and betrayal.

After gaining an MA in print journalism at The University of Sheffield, I cut my teeth as a reporter at a regional newspaper before moving into national media, specialising in women’s interest. My work has been published in a number of titles, including The Sun, Mirror, Express, Mail on Sunday, Bella, Best, Woman, That’s Life and Fabulous. I later moved across to communications in the charity and education sectors.

 

At the end of 2019, I made it my New Year’s Resolution to finish my first novel within a year. The first draft was complete in June and a few months later I signed a publishing deal with Bloodhound Books. My second novel followed in 2021 and my third is a work in progress! You can read more about my journey on my blog.

I live in north London with my husband, our two young daughters and our Blue Cross rescue cats. When I’m not writing, I can usually be found in a playground or drinking coffee.
