Chrissy Ward

Chrissy Ward wrote her debut novel, The Profile Picture, during Covid lockdown. She explained she was furloughed from her regular job, so reading became an important distraction. After reading an article by Anne Hegarty (The Governess from ITV’s The Chase), who claims that everyone has at least one book in them, she decided to give writing a try. Even though it was a crazy time, it was probably the best time because there were no other distractions and basically nowhere to go.

Reading Never Goes Out of Style

It wasn’t long before she had the plot and the direction down, but Chrisy found that the best part of writing The Profile Picture was creating her characters, who became her best friends as she wrote.

After the book was finished, the only reason she eventually considered publishing was due to the encouragement of family and friends. As the saying goes, the rest is history.
