More About the Author
Marty Wingate is the author of the Potting Shed mysteries from Random House/Alibi - The Garden Plot, The Red Book of Primrose House, and Between a Rock and a Hard Place.
Her new mystery series, Birds of a Feather - also from Random House/Alibi - debuts with The Rhyme of the Magpie (June 2, 2015).
Marty speaks at national events, and writes about gardens and travel. She can be heard on A Dry Rain (adryrain.net), a free podcast available on iTunes.
Marty is a member of the Mystery Writers of America and Sisters in Crime, as well as the Royal Horticultural Society and the Garden Writers Association. She leads small-group garden tours to European destinations including England, Scotland, Ireland, France, and on North American journeys. Marty doesn't believe that the thin veneer of tourism - successive one-night stops in a series of hotels - can ever replace getting to know the people, history and culture of a region, and so, when arranging her tours, she always includes time for a cup of tea, a pint of beer, or a glass of wine.
