One of Val McDermid’s selected writers for the International Literature Showcase
“Firmly rooted both in the secret lives of Edinburgh and what she calls ‘the murderous side of family life – the dark, the quirky and the strange.’” – Val McDermid
Edinburgh novelist of the overlooked. Likes to wander in graveyards.
Mary Paulson-Ellis is the author of two novels, The Other Mrs Walker, a Times Bestseller and Waterstones Scottish Book of the Year, and The Inheritance of Solomon Farthing. Both feature detectives who are not really detectives and deal with what happens if you die with no next of kin. In 2017 she was shortlisted as a Breakthrough Author in the Books Are My Bag Readers Awards, and Highly Commended as a Rising Star in the DIVA Literary Awards. She lives and works in Edinburgh, where her novels are set.
