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. The fourth novel in this series, 'A Quest for Clemency' was published in February 2016.
As befits a cosy mystery writer, Cecilia Peartree lives in the leafy suburbs with her cats.
