S.D. Mayes worked as a journalist and editor for nearly twenty years before turning her hand to fiction.

Letters to the Pianist is her first historical suspense novel, which took three years to research and write. She was inspired by her mother, Ruth's devastating memories of being orphaned in the 1941 London blitz, wanting to create an emotional, suspenseful story, illustrating real events that conjured up the time.

She has one daughter, Isabel, and lives in a small village in Berkshire, near the river Thames, where she loves to go for long walks.
