Discovering a new author

I love stumbling onto an author that I didn’t previously know about, who writes in a style I like and who tells a great story with characters and plotlines that ‘work’. It’s such a delicious feeling to ‘discover’ someone new.

I’ve been a fan of Kathy Reichs’ style of forensic crime since her first novel and while I’m on the waitlist to read her latest book, 206 Bones, I have discovered a new author to delve into, Kathryn Fox.

Kathryn Fox is an Australian author, who won the 2005 Davitt Award for her debut novel, Malicious Intent. She has worked as a medical practioner, with a special interest in forensic medicine.

She appears on, here’s her profile on her publisher’s website, and then there’s always her Fantastic Fiction profile to check out as well.

So if you are a fan of any of the following writers, Karin Slaughter, Kathy Reichs, Jeffrey Deaver, Patricia Cornwall, Mo Hayder or Harlan Coben, then I’d recommend Kathryn Fox be added to your reading list.
