Harriet Tyce

Author Tutor at The Novelry.

The Bestselling Author of Psychological Thrillers.

A Sunday Times Bestseller Writer.

Harriet Tyce is the internationally bestselling author of Blood Orange with a Gold Bestseller Award for sales in excess of 500,000 copies.

Blood Orange was a Richard and Judy Book Club pick. Long-listed for the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year 2020. Shortlisted for the Dead Good Reader Awards 2019. It has been translated into 22 languages and she has been described as 'The new Paula Hawkins'. 'Keep your eyes on Tyce' warns Booklist. Her second novel, The Lies You Told (2020) is another bestselling page-turner which has won acclaim from thriller authors such as Lisa Jewell: “I read The Lies You Told in two days, barely able to turn the pages fast enough. It’s spare and taut, the sense of wrongness building in chilling, skilfully written layers, with a jaw-dropping last line twist.” Sophie Hannah describes her writing as "totally addictive" and of her latest novel, Alex Michaelides says: “A slow-burning mystery, full of intrigue and menace, it creeps on you until that final explosive twist.”

Harriet Tyce, Tutor.

Harriet Tyce was born and grew up in Edinburgh. She did a degree in English Literature at Oxford University before a law conversion course at City University, following which she was a criminal barrister for nearly ten years. Having escaped law and early motherhood, she started writing, and completed the MA in Creative Writing – Crime Fiction at the University of East Anglia. She lives in north London with her husband and children, and two rather demanding pets, a cat and a dog. If you're writing a thriller, crime, mystery, suspense or a psychological thriller, you'll find Harriet a wise and brilliant tutor.

“It has changed my life.”

“This experience woke me up inside. It gave me something to look forward to in the lonely world of writing. That is what Novelry gave me: direction. I would recommend The Novelry 100%. Because it works. It is real. For me this has been a game-changer.”

“Life-Changing.”

“What does life-changing mean? I could tell, about two weeks after starting the course, that something within me was surfacing and getting stronger. I'm becoming a different person, a stronger person, because of this course, getting the story down. It was breathtaking in the best of ways. I'm still reeling.” 

Matti Hicks.

After six years of labouring on my book, I ended up with a story that blows my mind. My tutor was not only an expert on the craft of writing, but also incredibly smart, witty, creative and an absolute joy to work with.”
