She lives in London and Suffolk with her family.

Myerson twines a delightfully twisted tale, exposing the dark underbelly of love and the gaping, raw wounds of grief… By turns terrifying and heartbreaking; an enthralling spine-chiller.

Kirkus Review
on The Stopped Heart

It’s a gothic thriller that doesn’t go over the top; more alarming still for its literary precision... This is a book that you will turn through the night to reach its conclusion — Myerson has you dying for the end and even surer that you will do just that when you get there.
