About the Author:
Harriet Steel is a British author. Born in London, she grew up on a farm in Wiltshire. She now lives in Surrey and is married with two grown-up daughters. She graduated with a BA in Law from Cambridge University and has worked in fields from law to libraries.
Her love of history, art and travel influences her writing. She published four historical novels before turning to crime with her murder mystery series, The Inspector de Silva Mysteries. The idea for these was sparked off by a memorable trip to the lovely island of Sri Lanka, and they are set there in the 1930s when it was still a British colony, Ceylon.
As a reader, her tastes are wide, but when it comes to murder mysteries, she is particularly fond of vintage ones. She would love to go back in time and spend a day having lunch with Hercule Poirot, tea with Miss Marple, and dinner at the Ritz with Lord Peter Wimsey.
