Daphne Neville

UK flag (b.1972)

Daphne Neville was born in Northamptonshire, England and moved to Cornwall in 1972. After she married and while bringing up her four children, she worked in the local pub and was inspired to write The Ringing Bells Inn. When her debut novel was finalised she began to write a sequel, Polquillick.
However, not happy that the stories covered a mere two years she decided to go for lucky seven and write a further five. Hence the seven books in the Trengillion Mystery Series cover village life in Cornwall over a time span of sixty years from 1952 to 2012.
The Old Tile House is a standalone novella and introduces readers to Pentrillick, a village on the south coast of West Cornwall and the setting for The Pentrillick Cornish Mystery series. All five books in the series, The Chocolate Box Holiday, A Pasty in a Pear Tree, The Suitcase in the Attic, Tea and Broken Biscuits and The Old Bakehouse are available now.
