About me

Hello from Somerset…

I’m Frances Evesham, and I’m pleased to meet you on my website. If you like Agatha Christie-style murder mysteries you’ve come to the right place.

Here’s a bit about me:

One day, I walked on a peaceful Somerset beach and discovered a unique nine-legged Victorian lighthouse. My first Agatha Christie-style murder mystery, Murder at the Lighthouse, was born that day.

Like many of my readers, I love Sherlock Holmes, Miss Marple, and Murder She Wrote, and the grand tradition of whodunnits with intriguing puzzles to solve, villains who must be brought to justice, and amateur private investigators.

The Exham on Sea contemporary crime series is set in a small seaside town very like my own home, surrounded by the wonderful rolling hills, green levels and narrow roads of the West Country. It’s the perfect place to indulge my obsessions with beautiful places, cake and chocolate, overgrown dogs, and aloof, self-possessed cats.

In my spare time, I collect poison recipes and other ways of dispatching my unfortunate victims. I like to cook with a glass of wine in one hand and a bunch of chillies in the other, my head full of murder―fictional only.
