I worked as a probation officer in Leeds for a number of years. I started writing crime fiction because I thought made-up criminals would be easier to manage (I was wrong).

As well as writing novels, I have written for BBC drama Doctors and my short stories and articles have appeared in various publications and anthologies, including Mslexia and Scotland on Sunday.

I’ve always loved the sea, and now live on the beautiful south Devon coast. If I’m not reading or writing, I’m probably in the garden.

Rate this book
Clear rating
A breezy account of Pym's life, based on her archive, but I would have liked more analysis of her work and insight into her creative process.

I've enjoyed some of ECR Lorac's post-war novels - more for their portrayal of period detail than the plots. This one, though, I struggled with. After a magnificent opening scene worthy of Velazquez - two chess players, an artist at his easel, a mode ...more
