About Gwyneth Williams

After a long and successful academic career, Gwyneth decided to finally write her first cozy mystery-detective novel. She always had it in her and has several more up her sleeve that will be made available before long to the world of mystery readers.

Although she very much enjoys mysteries, she feels indebted to all the women writers of her youth who inspired her so much. She'll probably talk about the books she reads to those among you who want to read her and correspond with her.

Her own taste in reading has always been, and still is, very eclectic. She enjoys films and traveling; in fact there are not many things that she refuses to enjoy, so she hopes you will find the same enjoyment in her writing.

She has, throughout her career, won several awards for her work for equality and justice for all, particularly for women, as well as for her contribution both to the recognition of women immigrant writers in Quebec and to the recognition in the rest of Canada of current literary currents in Quebec.

She's also a great cook, very much in the French and Italian styles but also likes to resuscitate old English recipes and share Welsh recipes inspired by her mother and maternal grandmother.

She'd love to hear from you and invites you to send in recipes to see them published!

Review by: Blair Boudreau on Nov. 27, 2014 :
"Everyone thinks they can write a play; you just write down what happened to you. But the art of it is drawing from all the moments of your life." - Neil Simon

What do you get when you combine a well-read literary mind with a lifetime of experience traveling the world and living in Montreal? You end up with Gwyneth Williams' first fore into mystery writing. Her principle character Sara, a seemingly innocuous middle-aged woman, diligently toiling with the daily struggles of work and family, suddenly finds herself thrust into a murder mystery spanning two continents and the two most prestigious French speaking cities in the world; Montréal and Paris. Ms. Williams writes with an accuracy that can only be achieved through an intimate knowledge of both cities. What strikes the reader the most, both about Ms. William's writing and her protagonist, is their authenticity. She is as relatable as "everyman" which draws the reader in to the escapism of her storyline. Which one of us has not thought about suddenly being thrust into the exoticism of international intrigue. To flee the banality of our everyday lives and to fly off on a very important quest for truth. If you can't afford a winter vacation or would just like to escape for an evening on a thrilling ride from the safety of your couch with a cup of tea, then "Last Step" will be your "Last Stop" towards that journey.
