Jo Smedley – Managing Director
Jo is the Managing Director of Red Herring Games. She’s written over 90 titles on the website, proofs all authors’ work, acts as general dogsbody doing everything from formatting to printing and packing games, and regularly answers incoming calls with a smile.
She’s a member of the International Thriller Writers, and The Crime Writers Association. She’s penned books (some of which are published), as well as scripts, screen plays, theatre plays and poetry.
If you are looking for a custom or bespoke murder mystery, Jo is often the first involved, and she’ll then pass your request on to the right author within the authoring team.
Emma Fairhall – Event manager
Emma is responsible for all events within the office. She has years of experience in event management and is super-organised and does all sorts of things with spreadsheets that Jo would never attempt.
If you’re enquiring about an event, super-friendly Emma will lead you through the process from decisions about what sort of event you want to run, right through to ensuring the final night comes off without a hitch.
If you come to us before even booking a venue, Emma is the one who can help you source all of that too, using our various contacts within the industry to make sure your murder mystery night is the most fun it could possibly be.
When you ring us, you’ll either get one of the team members above or an answering machine because we’re all busy.
One of us will print, pack and post your order, and we are there to add a human touch all the way through your shopping process. If you need to speak to a real person – just call us. We’re here to help!
