C.J. Daugherty


C. J. Daugherty was 22 when she saw her first dead body. Although she’s now left the world of crime reporting she has never lost her fascination with what it is that drives some people to do awful things as well as the kind of people who will try to stop them.


The international bestselling Night School series is the product of that fascination. Born in the USA, C.J. Daugherty has lived in the UK so long she considers herself British. She is well known for her books about Ireland and Paris for Frommers (Wiley) and has co-written books with her husband, the BAFTA nominated filmmaker Jack Jewers.


C. J. Daugherty’s first adult novel, The Echo Killing, will be published in 2018 by HarperCollins.
