G.J. Williams is a Welsh woman raised in England. She grew up in Somerset in a Welsh-speaking family and surrounded by a love of history, adventure and reading. She was also inspired by her primary teacher – a Welshman called Gerry Williams – who encouraged her to write, put on plays and also talks about history to her schoolmates. Her first play was about Betsy Cadwallader – the Welsh lady with a lamp in Crimea.
After studying for a doctorate in Scotland, she embarked on a career as a business psychologist for city firms. But while navigating the corporate world, G.J. Williams found an escape her first passion – writing tales of murder, mystery and intrigue. Her psychology background melded with a love of medieval history, draws her to the twists and turns of the human mind, subconscious powers and the dark-side of people who want too much.
She now lives between Somerset and London and is regularly found writing on a train next to a grumpy cat and a bucket of tea. There are five completed novels in her computer, all linked to Welsh history and characters. Her debut novel, The Conjuror’s Apprentice is published through Red Door Books and is also available through The Book Depository and Amazon.
