Catriona McPherson is the author of the Dandy Gilver series of 1920s detective stories set in Scotland, where she was born and where she lived until moving to northern California in 2010. DANDY GILVER AND THE PROPER TREATMENT OF BLOODSTAINS launched the series in the US and won the 2012 Macavity award at the Cleveland Bouchercon. DANDY GILVER AND AN UNSUITABLE DAY FOR A MURDER won the Bruce Alexander award at Left Coast Crime in 2013 as well as the Historical Agatha at Malice Domestic 25.
Catriona has worked in a bank, a history library and as a unversity professor – she has a PhD in linguistics – but is now a full–time writer with both the Dandy books and a new strand of contemporary stand–alones to her name. The first of modern novels, AS SHE LEFT IT, was published on the 8th of June 2013 and earned a Kirkus starred review.
When not writing Catriona is reading mysteries, growing fruit, vegetables and roses, cooking, baking, dumpster–diving, thrifting and hanging out with her two black cats and her scientist husband.
