Cecilia Peartree is the pen name of a writer who lives in Edinburgh. Her home is in a leafy suburb, she writes in the conservatory and is managed by cats.

Interesting facts about Cecilia: she was once a COBOL programmer; she has made stage props as diverse as a large golden egg, several rows of fake books and a cooked ham (cardboard inside, covered with a dishcloth and some bubble-wrap); she is terrified of spiders; her favourite artists are Picasso, Turner and Rembrandt.

Here’s a tasty vegetarian recipe Cecilia thinks she invented herself:

‘Courgette and potato thing’:

Set oven to almost any temperature (a setting somewhere in the middle usually works)

Peel and slice potatoes and boil until cooked to taste

Slice courgettes and sauté in olve oil or olive spread with tomatoes (you could add onions here too if you like)

Put potatoes, courgettes, tomatoes (and anything else you want to add) in an oven dish, and grate or slice cheese over them. You can add more olive oil at this stage.

Bake in the oven until the cheese has melted and the potatoes nearest the top of the dish have started to turn brown at the corners – usually 10-15 minutes – then serve.

  1. I just wanted to drop a note to say how much I am enjoying your Pitkirtly mysteries and the cast of characters. I’ve just downloaded your free books, which should then bring me right up to date.
    I hope you continue this series as I find them very cosy, humourous, and a good mystery to boot.
    Thank you for sharing your gems!

      best wishes,
