The Team
Della Maylan
(Jo, Emma & Della)

Jo Smedley – CEO, Writer, International assassin

Jo is the Managing Director.  She’s written over 100 Murder Mystery’s under Red Herring Games, 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 FairhallEvents Manager, Book-keeper, Gun Slinger

Always with her calculator to hand but never with a pen, Emma is a whizz with our accounts package (although she claims to hate it and does swears at it a lot!).
Not really a writer Emma came up with the character name Seymour Heathens for an event in early 2016 and has chuckled at her brilliance ever since!
Last year she went to Downing Street after a multitude of international murders.  This year she took a jolly down under to open up our Australian Branch and has returned with business plans, tea and a ‘didgeridont’ joke that left the office in hysterics.

Della Brett – Marketing Manager, Website Creator, Dagger Cleaner

Previously just a freelance actor that they used for events, Della was found sneaking into the office in early 2017 and  refused to leave. She was hired to save Emma and Jo from drowning in Murder Mystery orders, but after being given a ‘The Boss’ mug on her first day she decided to promote her self to Marketing Manager and post silly photos on facebook.

After CosyKiller was conceived she decided to make the website you are on right now and  hopes you lie and tell Jo how amazing it is and that Della deserves a biscuit for all her hard work!
