Domestic noir – the early works

My first three novels, written as Amy Bird, were in the narrow, intense world of domestic noir.


Yours is Mine, my debut novel, featured two women who exchange identities, masquerading as each other. The novel gained bestseller status on both sides of the Atlantic, reaching the No. 1 spot on the Women’s Crime chart.

My second novel, Three Steps Behind You was about a crime writer who believes he has to experience everything in order to write about it. Method writing, if you will. But underlying his writing is the obsessional need to get closer to childhood friend, Adam, and Adam’s wife, Nicole. And he’ll keep trying until he achieves it – however brutal the method.


A twisting tale of toxic friendship, psychopathic fixation and author identity, Three Steps Behind You is my second novel, and was released by Carina UK, the digital imprint of Harlequin, on 13 March 2014.
