Bev Irwin is an award-winning author of thriller, suspense, romance, and adventure novels for adults, young adults, and middle-grade. Her medical thriller, WITHOUT CONSENT, was blurbed by Lee Child and Michael Palmer.
Bitten by the screenwriting bug, she has adapted her women’s suspense, MISSING CLAYTON, and her middle-grade survival adventure, IN HIS FATHER’S FOOTSTEPS, to script format. She has won multiple awards in contests and film festivals for both of them.
Other projects include a couple of Christmas romance movies. She is also adapting her paranormal YA, GHOSTLY JUSTICE. This script is targeted for a television series, Nancy Drew for the younger crowd, a murder, a ghost, but no sex.
As a retired nurse, she often adds a touch of medical, physical, or psychological to her work.
She is in the process of self-publishing several children's and middle-grade stories. Coming soon: THE WORN BEAR, a historical young adult adventure, THE WOODEN STATUE, a Goosebumps-style camping adventure, and WINNIE’S CAPE, a children’s story about a witch’s yearly bath and friendship. THE WORN BEAR will be adapted to script format.
Bev lives in a small village outside of London, Ontario with a Golden Retriever look-a-like and a persnickety Maine Coon cat. When not spending time with her family, three children, and three grandchildren, she loves reading and writing. Time spent with friends over a good meal or by the lake revives her spirit.
An introverted single mother risks her life to find her kidnapped five-year-old son when the police fail and she can no longer trust those closest to her.
