Crime author Barbara CopperthwaiteHello!

My name is Barbara Copperthwaite.

I’m the Amazon, Kobo, and USA Today best-selling author of psychological crime thrillers INVISIBLE, FLOWERS FOR THE DEAD, THE DARKEST LIES, and HER LAST SECRET. More importantly, I love cakes, wildlife photography, and my two dogs, Scamp and Buddy (who press gang me into throwing tennis balls for them for hours).

My fifth book, THE PERFECT FRIEND, is out NOW! To find out more, click here.

Having spent over twenty years as a national newspaper and magazine journalist, I’ve interviewed the real victims of crime – and also those who have carried those crimes out. I’m fascinated by creating realistic, complex characters, and taking them apart before the readers’ eyes in order to discover just how much it takes to push a person over a line.


In my spare time, I can be found hiding behind a camera, taking photographs of wildlife. I love losing myself behind the lens as it is such a different form of creativity to the written word. Nature and the environment are passions of mine.
