Katy Watson

Katy Watson Grew up in a family of murder mystery addicts, Katy learned early to look for means, motive and opportunity.
After studying English Literature – with a sideline in crime fiction – at Lancaster University, she set about teaching herself to write her own stories, while also experiencing enough of the world to have things to write about.
Two careers, a lot of airmiles, one husband, two children, three houses and forty five published books for children and adults later, lockdown finally gave her the means, motive and opportunity to create her own murder mystery – with the aid of her scientist husband’s worryingly thorough knowledge of poisons.The Three Dahlias is the result.

Katy Watson recommends
Helle and Death (2024)
(Helle and Death, book 1)
Oskar Jensen
"A wonderful mix of golden age tributes, scandi not-so-noir, puzzling mystery, and a study of the sort of friendships that linger across the years, often against the odds... A belter of a book, and I'm already anxiously awaiting the sequel."
The Man Who Didn't Burn (2019)
(Juge Lombard Mystery, book 1)
Ian Moore
"Twisty, engrossing... A police procedural with a Gallic twist."
