Author Talk - Becoming Elly Griffiths
Domenica de Rosa was born in London, and had a successful career in publishing before writing what would become her first published novel while on maternity leave. She went on to write three further books about Italy and family, before turning her attention to crime fiction; under the alias of Elly Griffiths.
In this Author Talk, Domenica discusses why she changed her writing identity, and how she launched Elly on the world.
Elly's bestselling series of Dr Ruth Galloway novels, featuring a forensic archaeologist, are set in Norfolk. The series has won the CWA Dagger in the Library, and has been shortlisted three times for the Theakston's Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year.
'The Stranger Diaries' won The Times Crime Book of the Year 2018, describing it as "Scary throughout".
