About the Author

Julie Mayhew originally trained as a journalist, then as an actress, and she started writing because she hardly ever saw a script with a brilliant role for a girl or a woman. Her most recent play for BBC Radio 4, A SHOEBOX OF SNOW, was shortlisted for the Nick Darke Award and was nominated for a BBC Audio Drama Award. She is currently working on her first historical play, about love and electricity in the 18th century. Because she lacks focus (or shows great versatility - you decide) she is also a prolific writer of short stories and hosts a short story cabaret night, 'The Berko Speakeasy'. Julie's debut novel RED INK was nominated for the 2014 CILIP Carnegie Medal and shortlisted for the 2014 Branford Boase Award. Julie lives in Hertfordshire with her family, and you can follow her at or on Twitter: @juliemayhew


A genius idea, executed flawlessly. Red This high concept novel is intriguing, engrossing, and frighteningly plausible. I think we're going to see The Big Lie shortlisted for a great number of awards next year. Louise O'Neill, author of ONLY EVER YOURS Brilliantly realised ... this unputdownable book is also a powerful and moving exploration of friendship, family, sexuality and what it really means to be "good" Irish Times The Big Lie is a chilling, beautifully written, minutely observed 'what if' novel that messes with your head and stays with you long, long after you've turned the final page. Sarra Manning A very special book James Dawson, author of THIS BOOK IS GAY Brave, beautiful and devastating...Like all the best speculative fiction it echoes not only the past but what is happening NOW. Amazing. Rae Earl, author of MY MAD FAT DIARY One book that everybody will be talking about... a thought-provoking and chilling coming-of-age novel exploring loyalty, love and morals. The Bookseller (Children's Previews)
