Pauline Manders has been writing contemporary crime novels since 2010, all of which are set in and around Suffolk. She was brought up on a staple of classic crime novels and likes to write a structured "who done it" but with her own quirky twists. She is particularly interested in devising unusual murders that could be passed off as fatal accidents, but are in fact premeditated and well planned. Her novels make up the Utterly Crime Series and feature the sometimes outrageous, but always flawed characters - Chrissie, Nick & Matt; and the refreshingly normal D.I. Clive Merry. She was born in London and trained as an ENT surgeon before moving to East Anglia with her husband and two children, where she worked for over thirty years in the NHS. Since retiring, she lives in a converted barn deep in rural Suffolk and at last has time to write, share her husband's interest in classic cars and take Otto, her Weimaraner for long walks while thinking up plots for her crime novels. She is an enthusiastic member of a local carpentry group, and is currently carving three diving ducks to serve as legs to support a small table - this is proving quite a challenge!

A RED RIBBON WINNER and highly recommended!’ The Wishing Shelf Book Awards 2020.Read more Read less
