S.M. Freedman

Mystery and thriller author

Mystery and thriller author S.M. Freedman studied acting in New York and spent a decade as a private investigator on the not-so-mean streets of Vancouver, before returning to her first love: writing. Published by Thomas & Mercer and Dundurn Press, she’s the author of the Amazon #1 Bestseller The Faithful, which made the Quarter Finals in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award and was selected by Suspense Magazine as the Best Debut of the Year, Impact Winter, and The Day She Died.

Her most recent psychological thriller, Blood Atonement, about a woman who escapes an isolated religious sect and must determine if her alter personality is a murderer or if she’s going to be the next victim, was selected as a Top 100 Best Books of 2022 by the Globe and Mail, chosen by the Vancouver Sun and The Province as one of five books to give this holiday season, and was a finalist for the Crime Writers of Canada’s Awards of Excellence.
