She is represented by literary agent Mark Gottlieb of Trident Media Group, New York, NY. Contact information for Mr. Gottlieb can be found at gmmalliet.com/contact.html. She was born into a military family and moved frequently during her childhood, which nurtured her love of reading and writing. She has a B.A. in journalism and an M.A. in organizational psychology; she also received an M.Phil. in the psychology of learning from the University of Cambridge in the U.K. and did further graduate study at Oxford University. Her main field of interest is the psychology of the creative mind. She worked as a journalist and copywriter for organizations such as Thomson Publishing and PBS, pursuing novel writing in her free time. In 2008 her award-winning first mystery DEATH OF A COZY WRITER was published and fiction writing became her full-time career. She has since published dozens of books and short stories. Along with five Agatha and three Anthony nominations, her work has been shortlisted for the Macavity, Left Coast Crime, IPPY, Daphne, David, Derringer, and Dilys awards. The audio version of her second novel (DEATH AND THE LIT CHICK), read by Davina Porter, was a 2014 Anthony nominee at Bouchercon. Her series from Macmillan and Little/Brown featuring Max Tudor, a former MI5 agent turned vicar of a small English village, debuted in the autumn of 2011 with WICKED AUTUMN. Of the fourth book in the series, Cleveland.com raved: "[Malliet] may be the best mystery author writing in English at the moment (along with Tana French). She's certainly the most entertaining." Her standalone suspense novel WEYCOMBE appeared in October 2017. She donated $5000 of the proceeds from sales of the book to the American Red Cross, to aid the victims of Hurricane Harvey and other natural disasters. She is preparing many of her short stories for re-publication. Her short story, "Whiteout," was nominated for a 2020 Macavity award.
