From the Author
Like many of my readers, I love Sherlock Holmes, Miss Marple, Murder She Wrote, and the grand tradition of whodunnits with intriguing puzzles to solve, villains who must be brought to justice, and amateur private investigators.
The Exham on Sea contemporary crime series is set in a small seaside town very like my own home, surrounded by the wonderful rolling hills, green levels and narrow lanes of the West Country. It's the perfect place to indulge my obsessions with beautiful places, cake and chocolate, overgrown dogs, and aloof, self-possessed cats.
The Thatcham Hall Mysteries sprang from a life-long interest in history, especially the English Victorians. These stories are set in a 19th Century English country house, where gothic chapels, secret rooms, dusty corridors and hidden cottages provide a perfect backdrop for historical mystery romances, where determined heroines have to fight hard against the strict rules of behaviour of the day.
In my spare time, I collect poison recipes and other ways of dispatching my unfortunate victims. I like to cook with a glass of wine in one hand and a bunch of chillies in the other, my head full of fictional murder.
