Cecilia Peartree is the pen name of a writer who lives in Edinburgh and works in an art gallery.
She started writing fiction when she was six, and by the age of sixteen she had a whole cupboard full of unfinished stories. Although she persisted in writing more stories when life allowed it, she didn't publish anything until ebooks became widely available. To make up for lost time, she now aims to write and publish at least three full-length novels a year.
Cecilia writes the Pitkirtly series of quirky mystery novels set in an imaginary town on the coast of Fife, and the Quest mystery/adventure novels set in the early 1950s. She is working on a series of novellas set in Edwardian times which may eventually lead to a more substantial Great War novel.
As befits a mystery writer, she lives in a leafy suburb and has two cats.
