Amy Lloyd lives in Cardiff, Wales (United Kingdom). She is the autor of The Innocent Wife, a first psychological thriller (October 2017). Learn more about the author and her book, as well as ratings and reviews on the latter.
In 2016 Amy Lloyd won the 2016 Daily Mail Bestseller Competition for her novel The Innocent Wife.
Amy studied English and Creative Writing at Cardiff Metropolitan University.
When she started writing The Innocent Wife, she was trying to write the book she wanted to read. Amy loves true crime and was fascinated by the new wave of true crime that was gaining popularity, so she wanted to play on that phenomenon. She loves the way that when we consume this kind of true crime, we think we are detectives ourselves and we feel passionate about righting the wrongs in the justice system. She also likes the more sinister implications of this new trend. What if a documentary wasn’t telling the whole truth? How can we ever be sure that someone is innocent or not?
Let’s talk now about Amy Lloyd‘s psychological thriller, The Innocent Wife, and dive into the book story.
