A-Z Blogging Challenge: Letter Y

Ready for the last three letters on the A-Z Blogging Challenge. Here we are at Day 25 and April 29th is brought to you by the Letter Y. Which was a hard one for me. Especially since I'm trying to keep my entries tied to books and reading. But after much racking of the brains....

Y is for Margaret Yorke. Margaret Yorke is the pen name for Margaret Beda Nicholson, a British mystery writer and chairman of the Crime Writer's Association from 1979-80. She has been awarded the 1999 Diamond Dagger for her contributions to the field and the Martin Beck Award from the Swedish Academy of Detection for her novel The Scent of Fear.

Her series detective is Patrick Grant, an Oxford don who shares her love of Shakespeare. Grant appears in five novels written during the 1970s. She has also written almost forty non-series mysteries. Her novels cover everything from the cozy mystery to the suspenseful thriller.

One more letter to go!
