About the author

M. D. Archer

Lover of psychology, complicated people, and mysteries (...is there a theme here?).
​​​​​​​
Growing up, I never thought I was an academic type. My older sister was the ‘brainy’ one, my younger brother was the ‘sporty’ one and I was a classic middle child and the ‘theatrical’ one (I still am, sometimes). And I wasn’t particularly interested in school… until I found psychology.
​​​​​​​
Still, I laboured through a business degree then left little ‘ole New Zealand to travel. After a stint in London, I moved to Toronto (I’m half Canadian) and that’s where I discovered psychology and realised I am a big nerd after all.
​​​​​​​
When I came back to NZ, I embarked on a Master’s degree in psychology and then a PhD. And don’t tell my supervisor, but it was halfway through my PhD that I started writing fiction. Eight years later, I haven’t been able to stop.
​​​​​​​
Now I live in Auckland, New Zealand, writing part-time while continuing my work in psychology research.
Toronto will always feel like my second home, and I will never stop thinking human beings are fascinating.
Which brings me back to my original point.
​​​​​​​
I love mysteries.
​​​​​​​
My books cross a few genres, but they all have elements of mystery, crime and psychology, and they explore the relationships between people.
