My name is Ann Bloxwich; I’m a short, tattooed crime writer, with a profound love of cats and rock music. I’m married to Paul and I have four grown-up children. I’ve previously worked as an Oompa Loompa in a chocolate factory, a night care officer in a residential home, and had my own promotions company. I also co-owned a business involving male strippers and drag queens.
My debut novel, ‘What Goes Around’ is published by Dark Edge press and is the first book in the DI Alex Peachey series. I drew on a lot of my own experiences when I wrote this book, including that of being a parent to a disabled child. This is something I’ve not seen in fiction before, and I felt it brought an air of authenticity to Alex’s story, and also shows the unseen side of living with this situation.
I’ve had short stories published in two charity anthologies produced by ‘Crime & Publishment’; a crime-writing workshop run by Graham Smith at The Mill Forge hotel in Gretna Green.
When I’m not writing, I spend my time reading, playing computer games, or attending book festivals.
