Paula Gosling was born in Detroit and moved permanently to England in 1964. She worked as a copywriter and a freelance copy consultant before becoming a full-time writer in 1979. Since then she has published sixteen novels, won both the John Creasey and the Gold Dagger Awards and served as the Crime Writers’ Associations Chairman.

Her latest novel, TEARS OF THE DRAGON, was published in July 2004.
