Ruth Mancini was born in South-West London and started her career as a marketing executive for a publisher before undertaking a post-graduate diploma in law and retraining as a solicitor. Ruth has spent the past twenty years in and out of courts and police stations, representing those accused of crimes. She now lives in Oxfordshire with her husband and two children but still practises as a lawyer for a large criminal law firm with offices in London, conducting advocacy in the courts and defending people arrested at the police station. She juggles her legal work with writing crime and psychological fiction.
Ruth’s latest crime thriller THE WOMAN ON THE LEDGE will be published by Century at Penguin Random House in spring 2024.
