Janice Hallett

Janice Hallett is a British author, screenwriter, and an award-winning journalist. Before her crime debut, Janice worked as a journalist, magazine editor and speech writer for the Cabinet Office and Home Office, as well as writing for the stage and screen. Her first feature film Retreat came out in 2011, and she won the award for Best New Screenplay at the 2014 British Independent Film Festival.

In 2021, Janice published her chart-topping debut thriller The Appeal. Composed of emails, texts, police transcripts and other documents, this unique interactive murder mystery filled with amateur sleuths and thespians took the crime thriller to new places. Janice’s second novel, The Twyford Code, published by Viper in January 2022, revolves around a secret code spotted in a famous children’s author’s work by an English teacher who subsequently disappears, and the former pupil who starts to investigate her fate decades later.
