Product Information

Marvellously mysterious ... Perfect for mystery super-fans The Week Junior

Robin Stevens was born in California and grew up in an Oxford college, across the road from the house where Alice in Wonderland lived. She has been making up stories all her life. When she was twelve, her father handed her a copy of The Murder of Roger Ackroyd and she realised that she wanted to be either Hercule Poirot or Agatha Christie when she grew up. When it occurred to her that she was never going to be able to grow her own spectacular walrus moustache, she decided that Agatha Christie was the more achievable option. She spent her teenage years at Cheltenham Ladies' College, reading a lot of murder mysteries and hoping that she'd get the chance to do some detecting herself (she didn't). She studied crime fiction at university, and then worked in children's publishing. She is now a full-time writer and the creator of the bestselling, award-winning Murder Most Unladylike series. Robin lives in London with her pet bearded dragon, Watson.
