Iain McChesney

Biography

Born and raised in Scotland, Iain is a writer of classic mysteries.

The World Wars left Iain’s family with generations of widows. As a result, he has always been interested in the tangible effects of history on family dynamics and in the power of narrative to awaken those long dead. For his debut novel "Murder at Malenfer," he drew on childhood reminiscences and verbal family history to create the characters who populate Malenfer Manor—though he hastens to add that his family had barely a penny, far less a manor, and any ghosts dwell only in memory.

His second novel, "Countdown to Death," is a modern retelling of an Agatha Christie classic--with a shocking twist.

He lives in Vancouver, Canada, with his wife and two children.
