Hello, I’m LM Milford, author of the Allensbury Mysteries series.
It’s been my dream to be a writer since I first read Enid Blyton books as a seven-year-old and watched JB Fletcher from Murder, She Wrote tapping away at her typewriter in the programme’s opening credits. If I got to solve non-fictional murders as well, that would just have been an added bonus.
I’ve written fiction on and off for most of my life, trying my hand at short stories and novels, but it was only in 2006 while working as a reporter on a local newspaper that the inspiration for A Deadly Rejection sprang into my head. That germ of an idea bounced around in my head for weeks until I finally bit the bullet and began to get it down on paper.
The books was finally published last year, and it was the biggest buzz in the world to have finally achieved my childhood dream.
Book Two – as yet untitled – will soon follow so watch this space!
When I’m not writing, I like to cook and bake (and eat the spoils) and can often be found in pubs in and around my home in Kent, sampling their food and having a cheeky glass of wine. I also generally have at least two or three books on the go, which keeps me quite busy.
I love to hear from readers and writers, so please do pop over to the contact page and drop me a line.
