Julie Morrigan is the author of three acclaimed novels, and numerous novellas and short stories. Best known for her gritty crime tales based in the north-east of England, her 2011 debut novel Convictions became an Amazon bestseller, and was selected as one of the top books of the year by both Grift Magazine and the Crime Fiction Lover website.
The Cutter Trilogy of north-east crime novellas is Julie’s most recent bestselling series, featuring the brutal exploits of vicious Sunderland gangster Gordon Cutter and his criminal firm.
For fans of short stories, Bad Times: North-East Crime collects 32 of Julie’s shorter tales, many of which previously appeared in anthologies and magazines such as Bullet and Out of the Gutter. Julie's other works include the horror titles Darke and The Writing on the Wall, and the rock 'n' roll mystery novel Heartbreaker.
'Julie Morrigan writes hard first rate noir. She writes with a narrative immediacy that takes you straight to the story and lets it unfold with realism and menace. Her use of physical detail heightens the sense that the reader is about to see something nasty.'
— Richard Godwin, author of 'Apostle Rising'
'Simply put, Julie Morrigan is one of the finest writers I've come across in the past couple of years. And I’m talking about ALL writers – indie and traditional. Her books have been kicking six kinds of ass from one end of the world to the next.'
— Dani Amore, author of 'Death by Sarcasm'
'Her style is gritty, straight to the gut, and no-nonsense. After a read of one of her shorts, you almost feel violated yourself. Keep in mind, this is not your grandma's kind of reading, and I don't suspect the local church group will come a callin' any time soon for any author nights, but she ain't writing for the moral majority.'
— Sean Patrick Reardon, author of 'Mindjacker'
'There are some writers who you know will go on to be hugely successful. They have that little something in their writing that you know will have you coming back again and again. That indefinable spark of the storyteller that all writers aspire to attain. Some have it naturally ... Julie Morrigan is just such a writer.'
— Darren Sant, author of 'Tales from the Longcroft'
'Morrigan displays a versatility often lacking in the works of more established authors.'
— Leon Steelgrave, author of 'White Vampyre'
