Debby Jones grew up in Hythe, attended Folkestone Girls’ Grammar and then joined the Great Exodus to university in 1978.
After studying Law and French at the Universities of Sussex and Aix en Provence, Debby worked for the European Commission in Brussels for a while, then for a small law firm in Westminster, before starting a seventeen-year stint with Lloyd’s of London where she tracked down underwriters and brokers evading disciplinary fines and members of Lloyd’s who had defaulted on their underwriting liabilities.
She then worked for a Private Investigator with offices in Washington DC, Geneva and Mayfair before setting up on her own as a genealogist. Now Debby can find herself investigating anything – from the Great Snowstorm of 1836 to missing beneficiaries.
Her first novel, Dateline Haifa, which she co-wrote with a colleague, came out in 2019. A sequel is underway. She has contributed to and published the Write by the Sea anthologies and is currently working on turning Dan Hawk Psychic Detective, a film soon to be released, into a novel.
