Gwyneth Steddy is originally from Omagh, Co Tyrone and now lives in South Wales.
Her crime novels are set in West Tyrone, a place she says will be forever be home.
The series backdrop is a beautiful, and much overlooked part of the world. The stories are peopled with funny, tough and extraordinary characters – although Gwyneth freely admits she has taken some liberties with geography and no characters are based on real people.
She has worked as an occupational therapist for more years than she is willing to admit. In the free time she has between working and writing, she runs (slowly) and mountain bikes (even slower).
