Cecilia Peartree is the pen name of a writer from Edinburgh. She has dabbled in various genres so far, including science fiction and humour, but is currently working on a series of 'cosy' mysteries set in a small town in Fife.
The first full length novel in the series, 'Crime in the Community', is what is known as 'perma-free' to encourage you to read the second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth and now the tenth Pitkirtly Mystery, "Closer to Death in a Garden", published in September 2015.
The Quest series is set in the different Britain of the 1950s. There are now three novels in this series and there may be a fourth before too long.
As befits a cosy mystery writer, Cecilia Peartree lives in the leafy suburbs with her cats.
