Review of "Barbara Nadel"
I just love writing and getting any feed back so I can improve. Its been good for me to write as I am recovering from a stroke and had times it has been difficult to write now much easier. Thankyou for all the rates and comments
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.
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.
