Beth Abbott is a married mum of three boys who lives in South Wales. She works full time, and spends every free minute tapping away on her poor abused laptop!
She’s an avid reader of many genres, loves films, music and watching most sports.
She’s a huge tennis fan, and more specifically is a massive Andy Murray supporter.
One of the smartest things Beth ever did was to pick 2015 as the year to follow the GB team in the Davis Cup, and she’s very proud to say that she and her husband went to every day of every round, right up to and including the finals in Ghent, Belgium, where GB lifted the trophy. With two vuvuzelas and a huge Welsh-Scottish flag (along with the obligatory Union Jack of course!), if you were there and didn’t see her, then you almost certainly heard her!
Beth started writing the Alpha Company Series of books after a break from writing of almost two decades, but felt compelled to start writing again as she had so many voices in her head.
Ignoring her husband’s suggestion that she should try medication, she grabbed her laptop and started tapping away. Within hours she knew she wasn’t just writing another short story.
The Alpha Company Women Series was born!
Luke and Ellen came first, swiftly followed by the rest of the Alpha Company characters.
Before she had even finished writing Invisible, Beth was already planning four books. But then before she finished the third book, Concealed, she knew that she couldn’t leave CJ without telling her story, and without blinking, books five and six were in the works.
Even though she always knew her books would be about military veterans, Beth always imagined that she would base them in America, because that’s where most of the books she reads are based. Imagine her surprise when her first book ended up being set not only in the UK, but just outside of Birmingham, in the Midlands, a place she has absolutely no connection with whatsoever!
Gradually though, the books have moved over to the US, and the start of Relentless, heralds the move from the Alpha Company Women Series to the Stalwart Security Series, which will be based almost entirely in America, albeit with a few excursions to far-away places.
But for those of you who have fallen in love with the Alpha Company Family, fear not! You’re not the only ones! They will be in and out of the Stalwart stories, as and when storylines allow it.
