No one brings out the drama, obsession, and horror residing within us the way Elizabeth Haynes does it. Her books derive not only the deepest darkest portions of people’s souls but also the brave and strong side. Her first novel came out on 2011 and was rated by Amazon as the best-selling book in the United Kingdom. She has specialized in the art or crime writing, and it goes without saying that she is among the top authors in her field. The Elizabeth Haynes we know today would not have been brought to limelight were it not for all the encouragement she received when she was at West Dean College.

Elizabeth has written five books so far, and many more are coming. She specialized in the murder mystery novel category and her intricate knowledge of how the investigation of murder cases is awe inspiring. She has had her book published by various media houses and can be found in over 30 countries all around the world translated into over twenty languages as well. Her murder mystery novels are guaranteed to leave your body full of adrenaline. She has a variety of social media pages where her fans can reach her and ask her any questions they would like.


Elizabeth Haynes was born in East Sussex but currently lives with her family in Kent. She works from home with the support of her husband and son. Elizabeth worked in the Kent police department as an intelligence analyst and by the year 2006, she had started writing. Her work wasn’t recognized until much later, and the creative writing classes she took at West Dean College was the first stepping stone to her success. She frequently participated in the National Novel Writing contest held annually and on 2011, her novel ‘into the darkest corner’ caught the attention of her colleagues who later urged her to publish the book. She is one of the few British accomplished crime writers, and her work should surely be recommended to all those trying to take up crime writing in future. Her life at Kent is scattered over her second book Dark Tide and tries to express how much Kent means to her.

Work life.

Into the darkest corner was titled an Amazon UK best seller and was later published and distributed in the United States by Harper Collins and weeks later was declared a New York Times bestseller. The book is about a courageous character named Catherine who battles the skeletons in the past she thought was now behind her. The book employs a lot of skill in portraying double time frames that merge well into the story of Catherine. Catherine starts out as living a happy life and the support she gets from her partner Lee becomes the envy of her closest friends.

Catharine’s life takes a sudden turn when Lee’s behavior changes for the worse. Catherine is unable to live with the controlling and aggressive personality her partner exposes and she plans her elaborate plan of how she will escape all this. It seems possible that she would finally move on away from Lee, but that dream is cut short when Lee finally tracks down Catherine’s location. Enjoy the most thrilling chase you will ever read, and with a movie soon to come out, Elisabeth surely did a fantastic job at this. Her other notable work is probably ‘revenge of the tide’. The book is her second to be published and comes in two titles depending o where you get it from. In the U.K and European markets, it’s known as ‘revenge of the tide’ while in the U.S market it goes by the title Dark Tide.

All her books have a stunningly small number of characters and the best thing about them is that they carry a little twist in the location and times. Dark Tide is set in Kent, her hometown, and even though the characters do not represent any cases she has handled, the crime novel will glue you to your seat and offer a glimpse into a world we all fear.


All her books can be found online, and details of all the work she has written are listed on her web page. Get insights into what she’s writing next on her Facebook and Twitter page. Her characters always seem so real and how she described Lee or Dylan move the audience into this world full of hope and joy even though they know for sure things will end badly for the lead character. She takes her artistry and incorporates love passion and fear so well nobody realizes it until it ends that even the villains in the novel did their atrocious crimes for love.
Thoughts and suggestions.

From many people’s standpoints, Dark Tide and the plot to her first book seem similar, and that might be true. But for those who haven’t read her first publication, Dark Tide has an entirely different plot to her first novel and even though it seems obvious, her lead characters Catherine and Genevieve are so varied most will wish that Catherine had the courage Genevieve had in the second book.

Her books cover a broad range of problems the modern woman faces and delves into how to face issues like domestic violence or stalking which both common problems are found in today’s society. In the end, running away is never the answer. From what we can learn is that even though your partner might be smart or influential and all your complaints to the proper authorities might fall on deaf ears, there is always a way out of it.

Not all her novels focus on relationship problems; however, she takes a whole different turn in her third novel and intricately describes how a solitary life has adverse effects. In general, Elizabeth tries to express how emotions such as love and hate could create barriers in people’s lives, describing how a lonely life could be just as bad as a life lived obsessing over a person who will never express the same emotions towards you.
