All in Her Head by Nikki Smith

Alison is convinced she’s being stalked by her ex-husband until the mention of one name turns her world upsidedown. Is she losing her mind or is it all in her head?

The authors:

Trevor Wood has lived in Newcastle for 25 years and considers himself an adopted Geordie, though he still can’t speak the language. He’s a successful playwright who has also worked as a journalist and spin-doctor for the City Council. Trevor holds an MA in Creative Writing (Crime Fiction) from UEA.

‘Solid plotting, strong characterisation and a likable and sympathetic protagonist add up to an assured debut’ Guardian

Nikki Smith studied English Literature at Birmingham University, before pursuing a career in finance. Following a ‘now or never’ moment, she applied for a Curtis Brown Creative course where she started writing this book. She lives near Guildford with her family and a cat who thinks she’s a dog.
