Candy Denman spent most of life as a nurse working for the NHS but has finally
managed to leave and concentrate on writing full time. In the past, she has written
extensively for television, including programmes such as The Bill, Heartbeat and
Doctors. Having enjoyed writing both crime and medical stories, she decided to
combine the two in her series featuring Dr Jocasta Hughes, a police doctor in
Hastings. The medical stories might come from Candy's previous work as a nurse, but the serial killer elements come strictly from her imagination.
