Screen Shot 2018-08-10 at 17.02.43Meet Pict Publishing author Kerry Watts who was born and grew up in a small town in the East of Scotland.

It took twenty years for her to pluck up the courage to finally share her scribbles with the paying public.

She is always writing and carries a little notebook and pen with her wherever she goes because at her age ideas need to be captured before they disappear.
Kerry specialises in crime fiction because she enjoys pushing the boundaries of what it is to be human. The nature versus nurture debate fascinates her. She loves to put her characters in impossible situations just to see what happens. Her experience as a psychiatric nurse heavily influences her writing.

When she’s not writing she loves to spend time following her other passions – dogs, particularly rescue mutts and horse racing. The sight of a thoroughbred race horse at full stretch has been known to move her to tears, not just lump in the throat stuff but full on blubbing. And for that she is unashamed. One day she’s going to buy a race horse and call him Dexter King.

Detective Sergeant Carol Murphy and Constable Donna Dixon have the most important case of their careers to crack: the deaths of two middle-class women who appear to have taken their own lives.

The deaths turn out to be staged, and more violent attacks soon take place. On the hunt for the killer, the investigators suspect that he is capable of hiding his inner monster behind a façade of a perfect family.

Determined to end the serial killer’s reign of terror, Carol and Donna search high and low for clues and leads. How much horror can the murderer unleash before his killing spree comes to an end?
