Kate Ellis first enjoyed literary success as a winner of the North West Playwrights competition. She was nominated twice for the CWA Short Story Dagger 2003 and THE PLAGUE MAIDEN was nominated for the Theakston's Old Peculiar Crime Novel of the Year 2005.
""Ellis skillfully interweaves ancient and contemporary crimes in an impeccably composed tale . . . an absorbing plot smoothly blends archaeology with current forensic procedures."" Publishers Weekly"
