We are delighted to share that bestselling psychological suspense author Kathryn Croft has signed a two-book deal with Canelo for World English Language rights. Commissioning editor Leodora Darlington acquired the two novels from Madeleine Milburn.

The first novel to publish is titled The Other Husband, about a schoolteacher Abby who shares what is meant to be an innocent evening with her best friend’s husband Greg, but what starts out as a little fun has devastating consequences not only for the two of them, but for the people they love most as well. It will be published simultaneously in print and ebook formats in October 2021, and we can’t wait for everyone to get their hands on this gripping ride of a novel.

Kathryn Croft has sold over one million copies of her books to date, with several of her titles hitting the number one spot on Amazon, such as The Girl With No Past. She now lives in Guildford, Surrey, the place she grew up, with her husband, their two children, and writes full time.

Leodora Darlington says: ‘Kathryn is the queen of writing captivating psychological fiction and I’m absolutely thrilled to be working with her to publish more of her brilliant novels. Her ideas are fresh and exciting, and her writing never fails to have me reading way past my bedtime. I simply can’t wait for readers to discover her new work.’

Kathryn Croft says: ‘I’m so excited to begin a new journey in my writing career with Canelo and I can’t wait for my next two books to be published with them. Leodora is such a pleasure to work with and I’m hugely impressed with her editorial skills, insight and enthusiasm!’

Madeleine Milburn says: ‘I am so proud to have represented Kathryn over the years as she has grown to become a multi-million copy bestselling author, and I’m over the moon that her latest thriller has found the perfect home with the incredible team at Canelo. The Other Husband is one of her most gripping, twisting, and brilliant novels yet!’
