Short biography
Imogen Robertson's bio reads: I grew up in Darlington, studied Russian and German at Cambridge and now live in London. I directed for film, TV and radio, including the award-winning Numberjacks for Cbeebies, before becoming a full-time author. I was commended in the National Poetry Competition in 2005 and won the Telegraph’s"‘First Thousand Words of a Novel" competition in 2007 with the opening of Instruments of Darkness, my first novel. My second novel featuring the detective duo of Harriet Westerman and Gabriel Crowther, Anatomy of Murder, was published in April 2010, and the third in the series Island of Bones, is coming out in April 2011. My UK publisher is Headline, and Instruments has just been published in America by Pam Dorman’s imprint at Viking Books. I still go to my poetry workshop in Lambeth every week and have started teaching creative writing myself, novels allowing. The only disadvantage with swapping a career in children's TV for writing historical crime fiction is these days I have less opportunity to play with glitter glue and claim it's work.
