British-born suspense writer Mel Parish's innate curiosity leads her to find intrigue even in everyday happenings. She is fascinated by how one seemingly small decision can have dramatic repercussions, a fascination she explores in her stories of ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances. Fortunately, the characters in her head are the ones who have to deal with the fall-out while she leads a relatively normal life - or at least, what she considers normal
She hadn’t needed to flee. She could have stayed and faced the consequences. Lived a life of lies and fear of retribution if those lies should ever be revealed. But she didn’t have the courage. Or she thought she didn’t.
And so she’d fled. And to what?
To a life of lies and the fear of retribution if those lies were discovered.
