I am a writer and a bookworm. I studied Performing Arts at the BRIT School. It turned out I wasn’t very good at acting but quite liked writing scripts. I went on to take a BA (Hons) in English Literature and Drama. I later won a full scholarship for my MA in Journalism. My first two novels as Niki Mackay – ‘I, Witness’ and ‘The Lies We Tell’ – feature private investigator Madison Attallee.
The latest Niki Mackay novel ‘Loaded’ was released in May 2021.
‘Found Her’ was my first digital-only release and was followed by ‘The Girls Inside’. Both digital titles were written under NJ Mackay and both are standalone psychological thrillers.
I am a contributing author to the crime anthologies ‘Afraid of the Light’ and ‘Afraid of the Christmas Lights’.
I am also co-host of a true crime podcast, Crime Girl Gang. I talk about writing here, and reading here. I am represented by Hattie Grünewald at The Blair Partnership.
