Author of the Heathcliff Lennox series.

1920’s, Cozy crime, Traditional Detectives, Downton Abbey – I love them, along with my family, my friends, my dog, and my cat.

I’ve lived an itinerant life, always on the move having grown up in the military. My two sons are Jonathan and Sam Baugh and his wife, Wendy. Grandchildren are Scarlett, Hugo, Charlie, Joshua and Isabella Rose. We are infinitely fortunate in each other.

At age 60 I decided to write. I don’t know why but suddenly the stories came pouring out along with the characters. Suddenly a whole world built itself upon the page and I just followed along.

Eccentric uncles, stalwart butlers, idiosyncratic servants, machinating Countesses, Mr Fogg the dog, and the hapless Major Heathcliff Lennox at the center of it all.

My dear husband is Krov Menuhin, ex-US Special Forces, and documentary filmmaker. He is the eldest son of the violinist, Yehudi Menuhin.
