Caz Frear

Interviewed 22 August 2020

Caz Frear

Caz Frear grew up in Coventry and spent her teenage years dreaming of moving to London and writing a novel. After fulfilling her first dream, it wasn't until she moved back to Coventry 13 years later that the writing dream finally came true. 

She has a first-class degree in history and politics, which she's put to enormous use over the years by working as a waitress, shop assistant, retail merchandiser and, for the past 12 years, a headhunter.

When she's not agonising over snappy dialogue or incisive prose, she can be found shouting at the TV when Arsenal are playing, or holding court in the pub on topics she knows nothing about.

Sweet Little Lies

DC Cat Kinsella stopped trusting her father at the age of eight, so she’s certainly not surprised when a connection emerges between him and her latest murder investigations. It’s as if she’s been waiting her whole life for this moment.
