Born in Yorkshire in 1969, Carol Ann Lee spent her childhood in Cornwall and now lives in York. She has written on subjects as wide-ranging as Anne Frank and Ruth Ellis, and specialises in true crime. Her book on Myra Hindley, One of Your Own, is the definitive study of both Hindley and the Moors Murders case. Lynda La Plante chose Somebody's Mother, Somebody's Daughter, Carol's 2019 book on the victims and survivors of the Yorkshire Ripper, as her 'Book of the Year' in the Christmas edition of The Big Issue. The Murders at White House Farm, Carol's 2015 book, was optioned for television by New Pictures, and aired on ITV1.
