When she was at school, Andreina Cordani used to get out of PE by saying she would use the time to write a book and dedicate it to her gym teacher. In the following years, she pursued a career in journalism, working for women's magazines including That's Life, Cosmopolitan and Good Housekeeping. Specialising in 'real life' stories, she interviews seemingly ordinary people about their extraordinary lives - most of which you wouldn't believe if you read it in a novel. She lives on the Dorset coast with her family where she reads voraciously, watches influencers with increasing fascination and swims in the sea.

It grabbed me from the first page and would not let me go' * Sarah Ann Juckes, author of Outside * Welcome to the cutthroat world of the 'influencers'. Here, four gilded money-spinners are up to their ears in fame and freebies. Then one gets murdered on camera by a masked intruder and skeletons rattle in cupboards. * Peterborough Telegraph * I loved Dead Lucky. It was gripping, refreshing and wonderfully told: Andreina is brilliant at misdirection, so I had no idea what was ahead and all my early guesses about what was going on were wrong. The characters, though, were my favourite aspect of the story: they were so vivid and real that they're still in my head weeks later. Maxine is an adorable protagonist, Sam is constantly surprising, and every single character in the book feels like a real person. I hugely recommend this book to anyone who likes a twisty thriller. * Emily Barr, author of The One Memory of Flora Banks * 'Dead Lucky is a thrilling mystery about an influencer who is murdered onscreen, and I absolutely loved it!'
