T E Kinsey grew up in London and read history at Bristol University. He worked for a number of years as a magazine features writer before falling into the glamorous world of the Internet, where he edited content for a very famous entertainment website for quite a few years more. After helping to raise three children, learning to scuba dive and to play the drums and the mandolin (though never, disappointingly, all at the same time), he decided the time was right to get back to writing. A Quiet Life in the Country is the first in a series of mysteries starring Lady Hardcastle. You can follow him on Twitter - @tekinsey - and also find him on Facebook: www.facebook.com/tekinsey.
