Roz Watkins is the author of the DI Meg Dalton crime series and the standalone thriller, 'The Red House'.
Her first book, The Devil's Dice, was shortlisted for the CWA Debut Dagger Award, was the Times crime book of the month, and was optioned for TV.
Roz studied Engineering and History and Philosophy of Science at Cambridge University, before training in patent law. She was a partner in a firm of patent attorneys in Derby, but this has absolutely nothing to do with there being a dead one in her first novel. She is also an animal trainer and a qualified hypnotherapist, which provides plenty of scope for coming up with interesting murders!
Roz now lives in Cornwall and is a Royal Literary Fund fellow, helping students with their writing at the University of Exeter in Penryn.
She spends much of her time being ordered around by two very demanding cats, and also likes to walk on the coast, scouting out murder locations.
