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 of The Missing Husband was complete in June and a few months later I signed a publishing deal with Bloodhound Books. It was released in May 2021 and become an Amazon UK top 100 bestseller. My second novel, The Woman Next Door, followed in September 2021 and my third will be released in 2022. 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 on the school run or drinking coffee.
