C.S. Duffy wrote scripts for film and TV for over a decade, and when that made her so bitter she caught herself cycling past the office of a production company giving it the finger she quit the film industry and went to teach preschool.

During the kids’ naps she wrote Life is Swede, a thriller in the form of a blog, which caused several readers to contact Swedish news agencies asking why they weren’t reporting on the murders. It led her into the wonderful world of self publishing, and two years later her bestselling series Glasgow Kiss was selected for Crime in the Spotlight at Bloody Scotland in 2018. 

In addition to her own books, her supernatural thriller The Stranger is currently running on Storytel and she has several film and TV projects in development in the UK and Sweden (she’s mostly stopped giving producers the finger.) After emigrating to Sweden on a whim she now lives between Glasgow and Stockholm and got the idea for her first crime thriller while working on an oil refinery in Ohio.
