Anna Legat is a Wiltshire-based author, best known for her DI GIllian Marsh detective series. She is currently developing The Shires Mysteries, a cosy crime series trailing two West Country amateur sleuths. She dabbles in a wide variety of genre, ranging from satire to dystopian. She is a member of the Crime Writers’ Association.

A globe-trotter and Jack-of-all-trades, Anna Legat has been an attorney, legal adviser, a silver-service waitress, a school teacher and a librarian. She read law at the University of South Africa and Warsaw University, then gained teaching qualifications in New Zealand. She inhabited far-flung places all over the world where she delighted in people-watching and collecting precious life experiences for her stories.

She writes, reads, lives and breathes books and can no longer tell the difference between fact and fiction.

“I love Anna Legat’s writing – it is acerbic at times and peppered with laugh-out-loud moments” Lucy Beck, author

“Anna Legat’s authorial voice is barbed, often humorous, and reading it is as much of a pleasure as unravelling the plot.” Tim Stretton, author of The Dog of the North.
