Georgina Clarke's picture

Georgina Clarke

Georgina Clarke has always been passionate about stories and history. The Lizzie Hardwicke novels give her the opportunity to bring to life her love of the eighteenth century and her determination that a strong, intelligent and unconventional woman should get to solve the crimes - rather than be cast in the role of the side-kick.

Georgina was born in Wolverhampton, has degrees from Oxford, Cambridge and London, but now lives in Worcester with her husband and son and two lively cats.

She is represented by Laura Macdougall, at United Agents.

Georgina Clarke recommends
Scorched Grace (2023)
(Sister Holiday Mysteries, book 1)
Margot Douaihy
"In the American tradition of hard-boiled detectives, this was full of sweat, heat, and a lingering acrid smoke that pervaded the whole book. I could almost feel the grime under my fingernails as I read it. Sister Holiday is utterly unique - a gold-toothed nun with a history of addictions that still haunts her and a faith that is real, passionate, and anything but saccharine. She is a courageous truth-teller, even when she needs to tell the truth about herself."
Coming Home to Mistletoe Cottage (2022)
Celia Anderson
"uch a warm hug of a book! Perfect for snuggling down with in the festive season - preferably with a mince pie."
The New Girl (2020)
Harriet Walker
"Wonderfully drawn . . . Reveals something deep and real about the isolation of new motherhood. There were moments when I held my breath in this twisty tale, and moments when I caught my breath in sharp recognition."
