"Barbara Nadel"

Barbara was public relations officer for the National Schizophrenia Fellowship where she gained emense knowledge on Mental Health Issues. She was born in London, East End. She trained as an actress and over the past twenty years or so has made regular trips back to Turkey where she has family.
Barbara is the Patron of a mental health charity in Shrewsbury.
Now she lives in Lancashire and devotes her time to her writing.She found her acting training was very benificial to her writing career and her expericiences with working in a Psychiatric hospital which shows in her books.

The series of books which she is well known for are the crime novels which in one of them has the character Inspector Cetin Ikmen who is an Inspector in the city of Instanbul in Turkey and a hard drinking,heavy chain smoker,The partners who worked with him were MEHMET SULEYMAN,BALTHAZAR COHEN and ARTO SARKISSIAN who was an american and she worked as a patholofist ..

Her second crime series which she writes is with the character Francis Hancock and the setting for these stories is at West Ham East End of London and it is during the Blitz.Francis Hancock is an undertaker.

In 2005 won the CWA SILVER DAGGER for her book the 'Deadly Web'

She has the ability in drawing you in to her stories and making you feel like one of the characters. Also with her knowledge on mental health issues that certainly came out in the Pretty Dead Things.

Her books have been translated into many languages and she has become a very well known and popular crime writer.

    I am interested in the work that she did with the National Schizophrenia Society, but you could have included some more information - not only on this, but also more on her generally as an author. Does she incorporate this in to her writing?
