Angela lives in the heart of the Black Country with her long-term partner, Julie, two bouncy Golden Retrievers and a potty-mouthed African Grey parrot. It has taken many novels to find that one character who just refused to go away. And so D.I. Kim Stone was born. The Detective Kim Stone series has now sold over 3.5 million copies, repeatedly hitting the Number One spot on the Kindle bestseller charts and has been translated into more than twenty-eight languages.
