Bethan Darwin was born in Toronto but
brought up in the Rhondda Valleys in South Wales. She studied law at King's
College London and worked as a solicitor in London for a number of years before
eventually returning to Wales. Bethan works full time as an employment and
boardroom law solicitor at law firm Thompson Darwin.
Bethan also runs the women's networking
group Superwoman which raises funds for various charities through its events
and writes a bi-weekly column for the business section of the Western Mail
called Law and More. She regularly reviews the newspapers for BBC Radio Wales
on programmes such as Sunday Supplement and the Jamie Owen show.
Bethan always said she wanted to write a
book some day but it wasn't until she was about to hit forty and while on
maternity leave with her second child that she actually got round to sitting
down and doing some writing. Her first novel Back Home was published by Honno
in March 2009, her second novel Two Times Twenty came out in October 2010 and her
third Thicker than Water was published in August 2016.
