C. J. Tudor's love of writing, especially the dark and macabre, started young. When her peers were reading Judy Blume, she was devouring Stephen King and James Herbert. Over the years she has had a variety of jobs, including trainee reporter, radio scriptwriter, dog walker, voiceover artist, television presenter, copywriter and, now, author.
Her first novel, The Chalk Man, was a Sunday Times bestseller and has sold in over forty countries.
Since then, she has published The Taking of Annie Thorne (2019) and The Other People (2020) - both Michael Joseph. Her forthcoming novel, The Burning Girls, will be released in January 2021, also by Michael Joseph.
