Kitty Sewell was born in Sweden, but has joint British and Canadian nationality. She spent her adolescence in Spain and returned to live in Andalucia in 2003, keeping a foot each in Wales, Canada and a hand in Sweden.
She has a background in psychotherapy, and alongside this career wrote a syndicated weekly newspaper column on mental health, personal development and relationship issues. Looking to exercise her vivid imagination stimulated an interest in writing fiction. Her first novel ICE TRAP (2006) was the dissertation for an MA in Creative Writing, and was subsequently published to critical acclaim and translated into 15 languages.
Kitty’s novels hover around the genre of psychological suspense and only feature a little bit of blood and gore (no detective inspectors, forensic scientists or investigative journalists). Her interest lies in the sphere of hidden human frailties, sins, vices and weaknesses, and the webs from which victims strive for solutions or escape. Her novels are set in locations that she find fascinating, and which often to come alive as characters in themselves.
