Marion Todd's picture

Marion Todd

A native of Dundee,  Marion Todd studied music and worked for many years as a piano teacher and jobbing accompanist. A spell as a hotel lounge pianist provided rich fodder for her writing and she began experimenting with a variety of genres. Early success saw her winning first prize in the Family Circle Magazine Short Story for Children national competition and she followed this up by writing short stories and articles for her local newspaper.

Marion has also worked as a college lecturer, plantswoman and candle-maker and now is a full-time writer, penning the DI Clare Mackay series of crime fiction novels set in St Andrews.

Marion lives now in North East Fife, overlooking the magnificent River Tay. When she's not writing she can be found tussling with her with her jungle-like garden and walking her daughter’s unruly but lovable dog.

Marion is represented by Northbank Talent Management and her crime novels are published by Canelo.
