As Emma Dakin, Marion Crook writes a series of mystery novels set in Britain. Her protagonist, Claire Barclay, takes the readers to the sites of mystery novels, first to Hampshire in Hazards in Hampshire and then to Cornwall in Crime in Cornwall (October 2020). Perils in Yorkshire is scheduled for 2021 and three more to follow. Emma’s love of the British countryside and villages and her addiction to cozy mysteries keep her immersed writing about characters who live and work in those villages in Britain where she discovers vicious motivations that disturb the idyllic setting. Emma lives in Gibsons, BC.
