Vicki Delany

Vicki Delany is one of Canada's most varied and prolific crime writers and a national bestseller in the U.S. Most recently, she is the author of the Year Round Christmas cozy mysteries from Berkley, The Sherlock Holmes Bookshop series from Crooked Lane and (writing under the pen name of Eva Gates) the Lighthouse Library mysteries also from Crooked Lane.

Although she's loving writing cozy mysteries these days in the past she's written standalone novels of suspense (MORE THAN SORROW, BURDEN OF MEMORY), a traditional village police procedural series (The Constable Molly Smith novels - the eighth of which is UNREASONABLE DOUBT) and the lighthearted Klondike Gold Rush Series (Incl GOLD DIGGER and GOLD WEB)

She also writes Rapid Reads novellas for Orca Books including the mulit-award-nominated JUBA GOOD and BLOOD AND BELONGING.

Vicki's work has been nomiated for Arthur Ellis Awards, the Derringer, The Bony Blithe, and the Ontario Library Association's Golden Oak.

Vicki is a past-president of the Crime Writers of Canada, a member of Capital Crime Writers, and Sisters in Crime and a founder and organizer of Women Killing It! A festival of female crime writers held each year in Prince Edward County, Ontario, where she lives among the tomato and sunflower fields.
