THE GIRL BEYOND THE GATE
One child. Two women fighting to protect her. Sometimes being right can be deadly.
Becca Day lives in the middle of the woods in Surrey with her husband, daughter and cocker spaniel. She studied acting at Guildford College and went on to start her own Murder Mystery theatre troup. It was this move that inspired her love of crime fiction, and when she sold the company she threw herself head first into crime writing. Her short fiction has won several prizes and she is now working on her first full-length novel. Aside from writing, she is also an avid reader and runs Reading Parties with fellow author William Shaw.
