Why is the combination of crime, time and place such a winning formula for fiction writing? 

Who better to answer that question than crime writer,  Alis Hawkins, author of the Teifi Valley Coroner novels and A Bitter Remedy, the first in her Oxford Mysteries series set in and around Jesus College, Oxford. 

Find out why the historical crime novel has become Alis’ natural writing home and why it continues to beguile and delight such a wide range of audiences. 

Alis Hawkins grew up in Ceredigion and currently lives on the Welsh-English border. Her Teifi Valley Coroner historical crime series – featuring partially-sighted ex-barrister Harry Probert-Lloyd and his chippy assistant, John Davies – is set in the area where she grew up and has twice been shortlisted for the prestigious CWA Historical Dagger. A Bitter Remedy, the first in her new Oxford Mysteries series which introduces readers to young Welsh polymath Rhiannon Vaughan and college lecturer Basil Rice, was published in March 2023..
