TJ Emerson is the author of gripping psychological thrillers. Her latest novel, The Ideal Man, is published by Boldwood Books. Set in the south of France, it tells the story of three women whose lives change forever when the man who connects them all is released from prison.

Tracey’s previous thriller for Boldwood, The Perfect Holiday, was an Amazon bestseller. Set on the island of Mallorca, it tells the story of Julian and Olivia, a married couple enjoying a tranquil holiday in their isolated coastal villa. A holiday that takes a deadly turn when they meet Gabriel, a charismatic American, many years their junior.

‘This taut, elegant thriller thrums with dark menace and dread. I couldn’t look away.’
Kate Riordan, bestselling author of The Heatwave

Tracey Emerson writes the kind of books she loves to read – suspenseful thrillers that explore the darker aspects of human nature and allow her to investigate the social issues that interest her. She draws inspiration from writers such as Elisabeth Sanxay Holding, Patricia Highsmith and James Cain, as well as from contemporary thriller writers like Louise Doughty, C L Taylor, Helen Fitzgerald, Paula Hawkins, Louise Candlish and many others. Like any writer interested in telling a good story, she has read a lot of Stephen King.
