About steve higgs
When Steve Higgs wrote his debut novel, Paranormal Nonsense, he was a captain in the British Army. He would like to pretend that he had one of those careers that must be blacked out and generally denied by the government, and that he has to change his name and move constantly because he is still on the watch list in several countries. In truth, though, he started out as a mechanic - not like Jason Statham in the film by that name, sneaking around as a hitman, but more like one of those sleazy guys who charges a fortune and keeps your car for a week even though the only thing you went in for was a squeaky door hinge.
At school, he was largely disinterested in all subjects except creative writing, for which he won his first prize at the age of ten. However, calling it the first prize he won suggests that there were other prizes, which is not the case. Awards may yet come, but in the meantime, he enjoys writing mystery and thriller novels and claims to have more than a hundred books forming a restless queue in his mind because they are desperate to be written.
Now retired from the military, he lives in southeast England with a duo of lazy sausage dogs. Surrounded by rolling hills, brooding castles, and vineyards, he doubts he'll ever leave, the beer is just too good.

‘A complete cozy mystery series with an ending that left me on a high for days!’
Indulge yourself with a mystery-packed boxed-set of adventure as English village sleuth, Patricia Fisher, opens her own investigations agency and finds herself hip-deep in criminal capers before she can butter her first scone.
With her steady butler in tow, our modern-day Miss Marple will apply her fierce mind to the detriment of gangsters, thugs, and killers who dare to ply their trade in her quiet corner of the world.
However, beneath the cricket teas and church council meetings, a more sinister undercurrent flows. And when Patricia inadvertently triggers the wrath of a powerful enemy, she finds herself marked for elimination. They believe they are the snake cornering the small furry animal. Patricia doesn’t stand a chance, right?
Well, normally that might be true, but our lady has friends of her own – people who will come to her aid when she needs. That’s not the worst of it though, for the snake is about to find out the furry creature it cornered is a mongoose.
Hold onto your seat, because these cozy mysteries are an adventure!
