Anya Lipska is a British crime writer, TV producer and scriptwriter. Lipska’s crime thriller series, set in East London, follows the adventures and investigations of Janusz Kiszka, tough guy and fixer to the Polish community, and the sharp-elbowed young police detective Natalie Kershaw. The Kiszka & Kershaw series has won critical acclaim and was recently optioned by BBC Drama as a potential TV crime series. A radio story featuring the character of Kiszka was broadcast as part of the BBC’s ‘Poles in the UK’ series on Radio 4 in 2015. Anya’s debut, Where the Devil Can’t Go, led to her selection by Val McDermid for the prestigious New Blood panel at the 2013 Harrogate Crime Festival. It was followed by Death Can’t take a Joke, and A Devil Under the Skin. She is supported by the Polish Cultural Institute in the UK, which is dedicated to bringing an understanding of Polish arts and culture to a UK audience. Anya is currently working on a new standalone novel.
Married to a Pole, Lipska lives in East London. She works as a TV producer and has credits on a wide variety of factual programmes on many different topics, whether it’s Neanderthal archaeology, saving the clouded leopard in the wild, or Italy’s Renaissance Gardens.
