#guestpost: Blog Q&A’s for ‘Before I Found You’. Part 1
Be prepared for a dramatic ending after the full horror of Man’s inhumanity and the problems of public figures with twisted private lives are revealed. I would thoroughly recommend reading this novel although I wouldn’t recommend starting it if you have a timetable to adhere to – you will miss appointments and meals until you’ve finished it!

#guestpost Blog Q&A’s for ‘Before I Found You’. Part 2
The story is a nice change from some of the books I have read as it is set in the 1960’s so there are no modern investigative tools to be used and no mobile phones or internet, so all research has to be done manually. Read more here

Do you love gripping mysteries? Then discover Ruby Baker, a young woman with a talent for uncovering the truth.
A child found alone on the beach.
A mother who served ten years for a crime she says she didn’t commit.
Ruby Baker is back with another seaside mystery. When she and her friends rescue a child from the beach in a storm, police are baffled. Nobody has reported a child missing, and the girl appears to be so traumatised that she is unable to speak.
In Johnny’s hairdressing salon, the notorious Beverly Collins makes an appointment with Ruby, but it soon becomes clear the woman wants more than a haircut.
Beverly has just been released from Holloway Prison after serving ten years for child cruelty. The body of her missing daughter was never found, but Beverly insists she is innocent, and she wants Ruby Baker’s Investigation Bureau to prove it.
This isn’t going to be an easy investigation. Opinion is divided on Beverly’s innocence. Reporters Kenny and James are keen to uncover a big story, while Ruby’s best friend, Mary, is distracted and struggling to deal with motherhood.
As Ruby tries to unravel the past, she discovers that Beverly Collins release seems to have triggered a bizarre chain of events.
Has she really been framed for her crime, and if so, where is her daughter Ella Collins now? And who is the mystery girl on the beach?
Discover a gripping new mystery writer today. Great for fans of Agatha Christie or LJ Ross.
This is the second book in a mystery series is set in 1960s Brighton, a tumultuous time of change and opportunity.
RUBY BAKER SERIES
Book 1: BEFORE I LEFT
Hi I’m Daisy White – mum, entrepreneur, and writer. I started off self-publishing, then signed YA series to two fabulous US publishers.
I’ve always wanted to write crime but none of my initial manuscripts were anywhere near good enough to show the world!
In 2016 I rewrote an earlier idea and entered it into the UK International Novel Writing Competition. It was long-listed and that gave me the confidence I needed to submit to publishers.
My second crime novel for Joffe Books, ‘Before I Found You’ is out Feb 2018, and my first story for younger children will be published in an anthology for Patchwork Raven later this year. I’m also finishing off a standalone thriller, which I’m really excited about!
As well as writing, I give talks, workshops and signings. Writing is an obsession, a compulsion and a love, but like most writers I also diversify to pay the bills!
