About meCUNNINGHAM writes intense psychological thrillers with a skilled mix of fueled tension, dark humor and pulsating sex scenes.
When not writing she has worked as an investigator and intel analyst with the WANTED UNIT, ABSCONDER UNIT and MAJOR CRIME TEAM of Sussex Police. She also writes and presents the crime updates for SPIRIT FM Radio.
‘SC Cunningham has done it again! What a fantastic writer. This second book in the series is just as brilliant as the first and has you gripped from the very first page. Tara has been through hell, and just when she thinks things are going back to 'normal' things start to happen and its 'here we go again!' I don’t like to say too much about the story as it spoils it for other readers; all I will say is pick it up when you have plenty of time because you won't want to put it down. It’s very erotic, brutal and well and truly graphic. I said in my last review of the first book it was 50 shades crossed with Martina Cole, I still stand by that! Well done Siobhan! Can't wait for the film to be released and book 3!’
AMAZON REVIEW, 5 Stars, Cliffy, UK.
‘I read a lot of books and this book moves up to one of my top 5 reads. It is very erotic and intense at the same time. I like the way it goes into the past then back to the present. It keeps you on edge not knowing what is going to happen next. I read this book in 3 days because it is one of those books where you just don't want to stop reading it. Thumbs up to the author. Very well done.’
AMAZON REVIEW, 5 Stars, Steven Raffensburger, USA
'Couldn't put it down, totally reeled me in, had me reading & reading to the small hours. Gripping! Can't wait for the third in the series.'
AMAZON REVIEW 5 Stars, Stuart, UK
'OMG!! Finished ‘Unfinished business’! You certainly know how to have an ending AGAIN. Thought 1st one was good but this 1 fab. ''

‘Gripping Story - I admire this author, she isn't afraid to push the boundaries. Full of explicit sex but it is pertinent to the story and tastefully done. David is a fantastic character and I liked how the psychology of the character was shown. David isn't just a mindless monster. Can't wait for the next two books!’
AMAZON KINDLE REVIEW 5 Stars, Ice Maiden.
‘Shocking & an eye opener! Cunningham writes stunning accounts of the rich and famous! I was mesmerized with the way these people live and act and read the book in one sitting. All I can say is I can't wait for the follow-up to this eye-opening account of stars and athletes. Bravo Ms. Cunningham - keep writing everything you have ever seen because I find it quite exotic and crazy.
D Williamson ‘Hooked on Kindel’, Amazon Review, 5 Stars, Moncton, Canada
'I have recently listened to The Penance List on audio and loved it!!!! It's sexy, highly amusing and has the ability to really draw you in until you actually feel sorry for David... Which is great. I enjoyed it so much I have bought four copies for my friends, they just have to read it. I was wondering when the next instalment will be available on audio, I have a small child and a business so I just don't have time to sit down with the book but can hardly wait.'

‘Naughty, nice and nasty - I loved it! I was lucky enough to meet the author! She's utterly gorgeous and charming with sparkly eyes and a giggle that fills the room. Who'd have known she could write about such dark and sinister people? I was warned that the opening chapter is pretty horrifying - but it does prepare you for some of the horrors to come, at least! Set in London, there are characters that we can all recognise, some of whom I fell in love with. Other characters are less likeable - but only because they'd been written well! An added bonus is that the characters are developed well throughout the book by the author. I changed my opinion of one or two - but the writing allowed this to feel natural - and didn't jar as it has in some other books I've read! Gay or straight the characters are sexy - and their liaisons completely believable and add to the plot! And the twist at the end took me completely by surprise... Perhaps not for the fainthearted but so, if you dare, pick up a copy or download it and ENJOY! Xx’
Adrian F, Amazon Review, 5 Stars, ''Naughty, nice and nasty - I loved it!'', London, UK
‘Cunningham has crafted an epic in proportion novel here. Her characters are sultry and as real as they can get. I recommend this book very highly.’
Glen Cantrell, Amazon Review, 5 Stars, 'Great novel about sex. Dynamic Characters', California, USA
'The Penance List is a compelling novel. Even though the read is 470 pages, I found myself snatching it up every chance I could, wanting to see what David would do next. The book is dark, naughty...sometimes downright nasty. Cunningham's first novel will hold your attention to the very end'.
Susan Whitfield, Amazon Review, USA.
'A thoroughly entertaining debut, The Penance List is a mind-bending instant classic. Be on the lookout for more from this immensely talented rising literary star.’
Josee Morgan, USA
'A really good read preferably in daylight! One minute horrified the next laughing out loud, I finished the book covered in goose bumps'.
Amazon Review, UK
'Have to say the book is fabulous ... I'm pretending it's not my cup of tea as supposedly a girlie read but genuinely brilliant!'
Richard, Monte Carlo, Monaco
'My God you shocked my shoes off. Excellent work! '
Authonomy Author, Harper Collins, UK
'Couldn't put it down - a real page turner. Nicely crafted and highly unusual format with all the threads coming together right at the end. It's in a category all of its own and would make a great film. I look forward to the sequels. Well done'.
Amazon Review, USA
‘Boy, if anyone can write about sex this lady can! It's a complete turn on from start to finish - I'm ashamed to say even the sadistic bits have erotic appeal - and no writer's ever done that for me before!! I love the characters - they involve you straight away and the plot keeps you hooked right to the end.... what end? I'm going to read the next two parts of the trilogy as soon as I can get hold of them. You're a very brave lady Ms Cunningham, and I love what you've done: you've somehow given us all the things we want to read about in one. It makes you shiver, it makes you laugh out loud, it intrigues you, it arouses you... you don't feel guilty lapping up the horror because the characters in one way or another seem to deserve it (or get their revenge for it).’
Amazon Review, 5 stars, ‘Giving sex a bad name’ by Jeni Ivatts, USA
'Bravo! Cunningham artfully weaves a compelling tapestry of murder, mayhem, and Martinis in her latest work, ''The Penance List." Delicious and salacious, this novel offers a new twist on the modern romance and the classic psychological thriller. It is a riveting tale filled with colorful characters, suspenseful sequences, and titillating twists. A fabulous read for those who dare!'
Sharon Gutierrez Grgich, LA, USA
'A thrilling dark mystery with twists and turns galore, you will be on the edge of your seat, or with all of the lights on in your house when immersed in this novel. I'm a grandmother, so some of the subjects were a bit intense, but the well written story really held my interest. I can hardly wait for the following two books'.
Pat, Amazon Review, Dallas Texas, USA.
'Wow! What an exciting author SC Cunningham is. I understand this is book one of a trilogy. Bring on book two and three. This sex fuelled thriller is not one to be read by your parents...but it is a great read and I'd highly recommend it. Murders, sex, London girls, a beautiful psychopath called David and a hot blooded Italian footballer, this book has it all'.
Lucy L, Amazon Review, Monte Carlo, Monaco.
'I raise a glass, I'd love to meet anyone who writes like this. Blown away to the point of speechless. Shocking, vivid and bloody well written!! '
