Mel Sherratt has been a self-described ‘meddler of words’ ever since she can remember. Since successfully self-publishing TAUNTING THE DEAD and seeing it soar to the rank of number one best-selling police procedurals in the Amazon Kindle store in 2012, Mel has gone on to publish three more books in the critically acclaimed THE ESTATE SERIES.

Her new book, WATCHING OVER YOU, came out on 14 January 2014 and went to #1 in psychological thrillers in the UK, US, German and Australian Kindle charts.

Since its re-release in December 2013, TAUNTING THE DEAD has also gone to #1 in police procedurals in the UK, US and Australian Kindle charts.

The three books in THE ESTATE SERIES also hit spots #1, #2 and #3 in the overall top 100 Australian charts and recently all three entered the top 100 in the UK. They have all been #1 in the UK psychological thrillers category.
