A feature length German language Inspector Beagle murder mystery is currently in the final stages and will shortly become available as an ebook and print edition.
Maria’s Inspector Beagle murder mysteries are set in the fictional town of Mumsgate in 1940’s war torn Britain and deal with the complexities of upholding the law when Hitler & Co’s unwanted visits are doing their best to disrupt Inspector Beagle’s investigations. There may not be any fuel for the police car, sausage and egg for breakfast or guns to enforce the law, but there’ll always be plenty of humanity and humour, as far as Mumsgate’s police force is concerned.
Like any professional writer she works on several book projects at once. “The House Detective” is a children’s adventure novel aimed at age range 9-12. Meet 10-year-old Stevie and the mysterious house detective Hamish Fensterlein and you’ll find yourself up to your ears in magical mayhem, for the two are hunting run-away houses and try to solve a medieval mystery. Watch out for evil dwarves, estate agents with a grudge and school bullies along the way!
