M J Hardy is my very serious pen name. Mary Jane was my father's mum and Hardy was the maiden name of my mother's - Vera Hardy. 

I wanted to write a story that was dark, gripping and compelling. I needed to publish this story under a pen name because it is completely different from my usual books. That book was The Girl on Gander Green Lane.

I hope you enjoy reading something a little different from me because I loved writing it.

Although this book is 100% fiction and my husband wants that underlined in red! Gander Green Lane is a real place near to the school I went to as a child. I always loved the name which is why I used it here.

I was over the moon with the reaction to this book. It quickly reached the top 100 in the UK after having only been published a few weeks. It reached the top 300 in the US - my highest ever ranking book.

Due to demand, I have published my second Thriller, The Husband Thief. At one point in this book, I put my head in my hands and wanted to shout at one of the characters. Even I couldn't believe what she was doing! I am so excited to share this book with you and hope you like it too.
