About Amy Myers / Harriet Hudson

The British writer Amy Myers is a novelist with many talents, having produced a large backlog of work throughout the years. Mainly known for writing a number of mystery series, she has effectively made a name for herself as an author who is masterful at creating suspense and intrigue. This has also seen her rise in prominence as a writer who is extremely gifted at crafting finely crafted characters who feel extremely real and immediate. Immersing her readers in her worlds, she takes them on a journey, allowing them to experience all the many twists and turns along with the leading protagonist. As for the protagonists themselves, she has produced a large quantity of highly intricate iconic characters, allowing the readers to feel as if they really know them.

Building a sense of familiarity with her protagonists over the course of a series, she also has many franchises under her belt as a writer too. Setting up long-running character arcs, she builds the narrative over the course of the novels, allowing it to intertwine with the world around the protagonist as well. This has made for an extremely genuine and inventive approach to the format, allowing her to become the highly regarded author that she currently is today, whether she’s writing under the pen-name Harriet Hudson, Laura Daniels or her own name.

Early and Personal Life

Born in Barnehurst in 1938, she would grow up in the vicinity of Kent in the UK, which would later become a part of Greater London in 1965. Holding a lifelong fascination for the written word and everything relating to it, she would later go on to work in publishing, thereby nurturing her love even more. It was whilst working in this job that she would also meet her husband James Myers, all whilst working on the autobiography for the English bullfighter Henry Higgins.

They would then go on to have a relationship, which was split between London where she was working, and Paris where James was working. This would take place over the course of ten years, during this time that she’d devise her first detective character, Auguste Didier. Following this she would go on to become a successful full-time writer in her own right, producing scores of books that continue to be read to this very day.

Writing Career

Starting with the novel ‘Murder in Pug’s Parlour’ in 1986, Amy Myers would embark on her career with the first in the series of ‘Auguste Didier’ mystery novels. Later she would write other series, such as the ‘Marsh and Daughter’ series, along with the ‘Tom Wasp’, ‘Nell Drury’ and ‘Classic Car’ series too. She would also go on to write under the pseudonym of Harriet Hudson too, writing her first book under the pen-name in 1989 titled ‘Look for Me by Moonlight’, along with writing under Laura Daniels too, first producing ‘Lakenham Folly’ in 2015. With her Harriet Hudson pen-name, she has mostly been focusing upon writing romances and historical sagas using the pseudonym. Winning numerous awards for her work throughout her life, it appears that she isn’t going anywhere any time soon, as her writing career grows from strength-to-strength.

Murder at Plum’s

Originally published through the ‘Avon Books’ publishing label, this would first come out in 1992, setting up the third title in the ongoing ‘Auguste Didier’ mystery series of novels. Following on from the previous two, it would have its own stand-alone self-contained mystery, allowing it to be a casual read for newcomers. There would be plenty of elements for returning readers too though, building upon arcs that came before, whilst evolving and developing the main character.

Providing a taut and intelligent mystery novel with plenty of twists and turns along the way, this is one title that will definitely please both fans of the genre and of the author. With the main character of Auguste Didier, a master chef and detective operating in Victorian London, this really makes the most of its material. Using its historical setting to its fullest as well, it definitely manages to develop what came before, expanding on the overall world as a whole.

He never wants to become a detective again, hanging up his badge for life as Master Chef at none other than the prestigious English gentleman’s club Plum’s. Fate has other plans for the eponymous Auguste Didier though, as one day women are finally allowed into the club, making way for a major shift to take place there. Coming to watch the ceremony known of as ‘Plum’s Passing’, everything is in place, only to fall apart when a rat is left on a dining table. Following this there are death threats made, along with obscene letters sent to the doorman, all leading up to the potential of murder. Is such a thing possible there though? Where will all this chaos lead to? Who could ever commit such a heinous act as murder at Plum’s?

The Windy Hill

This is one of the mystery novels that would come out through Myers pseudonym of Harriet Hudson. Releasing this novel through the ‘Endeavour Press’ publishing outlet, it would first be published in 2004 on the 1st of May. Working as a stand-alone title, it would be a completely self-contained mystery novel as well, with it not being a part of any series.

Finding a cookery manuscript that has remained unpublished, Rachel French sets out to to do some research into the background of it. Looking to start her own cookery business using the recipes herself, she comes into contact with two men, both of whom warn her about the other. Whilst they initially seem more than helpful and willing to assist her, she soon starts to become more than a little wary of their motives. That’s when there’s an arson attack on her home, a fire which destroys her manuscript in the process, leading her on a path to discovering a number of hidden secrets. Will she be able to find the truth behind what’s going on? Can she learn who burnt down her home? What is happening at the windy hill?
