Avon Welcomes New Crime Author, G.D Sanders

We’re thrilled to announce that Avon Books has signed a two-book deal with debut crime writer G.D. Sanders.

Phoebe Morgan acquired World All Language rights to two novels from Jo Bell at Bell Lomax Moreton. Sanders’ first release with Avon, The Taken Girls, is about a series of young women who disappear in Canterbury, only to reappear weeks later under mysterious circumstances. It will be published on Avon’s digital-first list in December 2018.


Phoebe Morgan, Commissioning Editor at Avon said: ‘G.D. Sanders is an incredibly exciting new talent – The Taken Girls feels fresh and kept me totally gripped throughout. Sanders has a real talent for writing unpredictable, fast-paced storylines and this is clever, dark-hearted crime at its best.’


G.D. Sanders said: ‘Having seen how the Avon team promotes their authors, I’m very pleased they are publishing my novels.’


G.D Sanders lives in London. The Taken Girls is his first novel.
