Favorite Author: Ellis Peters



Ellis Peters is the pen name of British author Edith Mary Pargeter (1913 – 1995), who is best known for her two mystery series, although she also wrote historical fiction and nonfiction and translated Czech classics.

I'm reading her mystery series featuring police Inspector George Felse. Her medieval-detective series, The Cadfael Chronicles, featuring a Benedictine monk detective, is more popular and was adapted for tv starring Derek Jacobi as Brother Cadfael. I'll get to it one of these days.

Those I have read are in red; those on my TBR shelf are in blue.
