South Wales has played a big part in Pippa McCathie life, two of her three sons were born in Swansea and she visits close friends near Newport as often as she can. Brought up in Mauritius, she’s spent a lot of her life travelling, to Guernsey, London, South Africa, South Wales, Iran and back to Guernsey. She began writing in school exercise books to entertain her friends, which resulted in dubious exam results but much laughter. She’s had many poems and short stories published and, once her boys had been packed off to school, started on the novels. For the last 17 years she’s taught a creative writing class, and in her spare time she’s worked as a volunteer with a national charity, helped run Guernsey’s local Eisteddfod, and looked after a gorgeous husband and a cowardly cat. All these activities have helped her avoid time wasting activities such as housework and gardening. Murder in the Valleys, published by The Book Folks, is the first in a series featuring Fabia Havard and Matt Lambert, who are currently Pippa’s best friends.
