    Clare Mackintosh

    Mae Clare Mackintosh yn awdur sydd wedi cyrraedd rhestr gwerthwyr gorau’r Sunday Times. Treuliodd Clare ddeuddeg mlynedd gyda’r heddlu, gan gynnwys gweithio i’r CID, ond mae hi bellach yn awdur llawn amser. Nofel ddirgelwch gyntaf Clare, I Let You Go, oedd y llyfr a werthodd gyflymaf gan awdur trosedd newydd yn 2015, ac enillodd wobr Nofel Drosedd y Flwyddyn Theakstons Old Peculier, ynghyd â’r Cognac Prix du Polar am Nofel Ryngwladol y Flwyddyn. Cyrhaeddodd ei hail nofel, I See You (2016), frig rhestr gwerthwyr gorau’r Sunday Times gan aros yn y siartiau am dair wythnos ar ddeg. Roedd I Let You Go ac I See You ymhlith y llyfrau a ddewiswyd gan Glwb Llyfrau Richard & Judy, gan ennill pleidlais y darllenwyr ar y ddau achlysur. Caiff ei nofelau eu cyhoeddi gan Little, Brown a chaiff ei phedwaredd nofel ei chyhoeddi yn haf 2019.
