Elly Griffiths' Ruth Galloway novels take for their inspiration Elly's husband, who gave up a city job to train as an archaeologist, and her aunt who lives on the Norfolk coast and who filled her niece's head with the myths and legends of that area. Elly has two children and lives near Brighton. Though not her first novel, The Crossing Places is her first crime novel.

The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
" Happy new year! I adored it! Painful to read in places (almost felt I needed to detox afterwards) but wonderful writing. "

“When she bought the cats her mother asked her straight out if they were 'baby substitutes'. 'No,' Ruth had answered, straight-faced. 'They're kittens. If I had a baby it would be a cat substitute.”
Elly Griffiths, The Crossing Places

“You know how thick I am. I don't even eat yoghurt because it's got culture in it.”
Elly Griffiths, The Janus Stone

“Maybe humans need animals to help them understand the world. Certainly it’s hard to see what else cats do for humans, aside from looking cute and killing the odd mouse.”
Elly Griffiths, A Dying Fall
