Paula Harmon was born in north London but her life as a country girl began at eighteen months when the family moved out, trailing slowly westwards from small town to village before settling in South Wales when she was eight.

Her writing life started with “Clanger” fan fiction and making up stories to act out with a kindred spirit. These largely involved flying unicorns. In later Welsh years, she wandered lonely as a … well, lonely person, in woods and streams and wrote about portals to another world and mysterious woodland spirits. But her greatest love was for historical fiction and mysteries and now she's writing her own.

With no clear idea what she wanted to be when she grew up apart from a writer, she graduated from Chichester University (Bishop Otter College) with a BA in English Literature and a vague idea that, after a bit of life experience, if all else failed, she’d become a teacher, even though she had never grown taller than the average ten year old. Whatever else happened, she was determined NOT to become a civil servant like her mother and be able to talk in form numbers.

At her first job interview, she answered “where do you see yourself in 10 years” with “writing” as opposed to “progressing in your company.” She didn’t get that job. She tried teaching and realised the one thing the world did not need was another bad teacher. Somehow or other she subsequently ended up as a civil servant and if you need to know a form number, she is your woman.

Her short stories include dragons, angst ridden teenagers, portals and civil servants (though not all in the same story - yet). Perhaps all the life experience was worth it in the end.

She lives in Dorset with her husband, has two adult children..

5.0 out of 5 stars Third times the charm!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on February 18, 2021
I have wolfed down this series book after book and absolutely loved it. I was lucky enough to receive an early review copy of Murder Saturnalia and have since bought it in both kindle and paperback format.

The story follows the character of Fabio, introduced in book one, and tells of his story from boy to man. Deciding that arranged marriage is not his cup of wine, he sets off on a mission with his friend Petros that is full of twists and turns that keep you reading on and on as much as you want to savour the story.

Reading this during the winter months did add to the atmosphere and you can clearly visualise the world that Harmon creates. Though don't let the season stop you! I could read this book in the height of summer and still feel transported.

Lucretia is still up to her old tricks and remains one of my favourite characters throughout the series. I am terribly sad to see this series come to an end but I am hoping the author brings this eclectic band of characters back to us again very soon!

I loved the mystery elements and the strange traditions of the solstice. These book just get better and better each time and what's more they are so easy to read.
