Nicola Ford is a pen-name for Dr Nick Snashall, National Trust Archaeologist for the Stonehenge and Avebury World Heritage Site. Through her day-job and now her writing, I’ve spent more time than most thinking about the dead.

Her writing brings together the worlds of archaeology and crime, unravelling the tangled threads left behind by murder to reveal the stories of those who can no longer speak for themselves.

She has two novels published, The Hidden Bones (2018) and The Lost Shrine (2019).
