Hello! Welcome to my website. I write about murder and mystery, and I hope you enjoy it. Come in and find out more about me and the detectives in my mystery books!

Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong are the stars of the Murder Most Unladylike Mysteries. Murder Most Unladylike, Arsenic for Tea, First Class Murder, Jolly Foul Play, Mistletoe and Murder and the series companion Cream Buns and Crime are out in the UK and Ireland now, and the Detective Society’s next adventure will be published in February 2018.

Ted Spark is the star of my newest book, The Guggenheim Mystery. It’s the sequel to Siobhan Dowd’s The London Eye Mystery, and it is also out in the UK and Ireland now!
