Dee Kearney


Born in the North West of England, Dee spent many years working in Theatre and TV both as a Designer, Production/Stage Manager and Casting Agent for TV and Film. In 2001 she met David Vaughan (60s Psychedelia Artist) who convinced her to pursue her artwork. It was from there that she developed a passion for writing also. "When I wasn't painting, I would write and when I wasn't writing I would paint. It was all-consuming." David sadly died in 2003, but his influence stayed with her.

Recent family events caused a slight hiatus in her development as a writer, but now having moved to Kent with her husband Duncan to help with her disabled granddaughter, (who is hard work but an absolute joy!) she has settled and is writing once more with a vengeance in the heart of the beautiful Kent countryside.

She cites her Gemini personality for the need to write in several genres and she is equally happy absorbing herself in the creation of a children's adventure or entrenched in the grit of a fast paced thriller. Currently she is working on a family saga which she hopes to have completed by April 2019.

So … consider… What if the Guilty were innocent and the innocent in danger? Is it all in the lines of our hand?

Sam Cray, a streetwise and earthy detective looks upon the eighth victim of a serial killer they are starting to call the Illinois Butcher. Ruthless and vicious, the killings are particularly twisted. Yet has he made his first mistake? The killer leaves a trademark on every victim, a daisy tied with a yellow ribbon. Only this time he has sullied a previously unblemished record by leaving a fingerprint when he stopped to fasten a button on the girls clothing. A simple reflex, but perhaps giving the police a direct route to him.

Later that evening, a man sits in a nearby café and watches the police activity. Running the length of his hand is a deep scar.

Not another serial killer story, I hear you groan … not quite!
