Glasgow-born Anne Randall is the author of the gritty, award-winning Wheeler and Ross series set in her hometown.
Her first novel RIVEN (written as A. J. McCreanor) won first prize at the Wells Festival of Literature in 2011 and has been described as ‘A super story with a breath-taking ending that leaves you wondering whether the truth is better left unsaid at times. I loved this story.’ (Eurocrime), ‘For fans of Stuart MacBride, this is a delight to read. A.J. McCreanor is a welcome addition to the Scottish crime scene. Glasgow is in very dangerous hands.’ (Crimesquad), ‘An outstanding debut.’ (Daily Record)
Anne’s second novel SILENCED was described ‘as assured and clever a novel of ‘tartan noir’ as you could hope to find.’ (Daily Mail), ‘If you enjoy your crime fiction a bit on the dark side, then you are going to love this latest book by Anna Randall. It also has a wonderful twist at the end that you won't see coming. It blows you away and leaves you feeling exhausted by the time you have finished the book.’ (Eurocrime)
Reviews for the third novel in the series, TORN, include, ‘Anne Randall has definitely got what it takes to be the next massive name in Tartan Noir – well-drawn characters, a plot that will blow you away, superb dialogue (plenty of great Glaswegian banter), and realistic crimes. If you enjoy Robert Galbraith, Caro Ramsay, Denise Mina, or Ian Rankin (or, like me, all of them!) this will fit the bill. It’s a hugely satisfying, very classy book, and I’d urge all crime fiction fans – particularly those who enjoy their dose of Tartan Noir – to seek out Anne Randall pronto.’ (Crimeworm)
Anne has also had poems and short stories published in various anthologies.
Anne previously worked as a cadet nurse, flower-seller, civil servant and English teacher in Glasgow before retraining as a psychotherapist.
She now works in private practice in Glastonbury, Somerset where she lives with her husband, bespoke furniture-maker Don Storey, their two pesky rescued cats and an inherited and remarkably handsome collie dog.
