Publication Order of Anthologies

The British author Andrea Frazer was a massively regarded novelist of mysteries and thrillers, as well as children’s stories. Hugely versatile, she was a gifted writer who always kept her readers considering each outcome carefully, with countless twists and turns on every page. Showing a clear passion for the form, this immediately came across to the reader, making her more than compelling reading. Knowing her readers extremely well, she always managed to deliver what they wanted, while saying just what she wanted to say.

She passed in October 2016.

A highly creative individual, she was also a keen musician, making her work, and writing in particular, extremely compelling. Allowing her writing to essentially speak for itself, she really managed to provide a fun engaging experience when reading any one of her novels. Keeping readers constantly guessing throughout, she had a true gift for the written word, ultimately making it work on her own terms. This approach to writing found her a huge readership from all over the world, allowing her to become an enormously prominent figure within her field.

Characters were another aspect of her work that many had come to really appreciate, providing fully fleshed out three-dimensional protagonists. Everyone really felt like they actually inhabited each and every one of her novels, allowing them to come alive on the page essentially. Setting herself apart from other writers within her field, she was a hugely talented author with a lot to say and offer her audience.

Early and Personal Life

Born in Chichester in the United Kingdom, Andrea Frazer was always interested in everything literature from an early age. Over time she continued to nurture this passion and interest, continually developing her style and tone. Taking much of her inspiration from her immediate surrounding environment, she fed it all back into her work.

Reading from the age of five, she also learned music, which she then taught, as well as teaching French to ex-pats. Working as a lecturer in Greek too, she gained a Fellowship Diploma in Greek as well, all prior to writing stories and fiction full-time. She lived and worked in the Aquitaine region of the Dordogne region of southern France until her passing.

Writing Career

Starting out writing children’s stories, Andrea Frazer began her literary career with the book ‘Ghost Hunter’ back in 2011. This book began her soon to be much loved series of ‘Sebastian Snail’ children’s titles, each with colorful illustrations and designs. Managing the illustrations herself, she went on to write other children’s stories, before writing cozy mysteries for an adult audience.

The first mystery novel she wrote was back in 2012 titled ‘Death of an Old Git,’ and it also started her ‘Falconer Files’ series of books. Other series she wrote were titled the ‘Belchester Chronicles,’ ‘Holmes and Garden,’ and ‘Fine Line’ just to name a few. She also wrote a collection of novellas, along with several non-fiction titles as well, which focused on life in France.

Inkier than the Sword

Initially released through the ‘Accent Press Ltd’ publishing outlet, this book saw publication on the 7th of February in 2012. It also set up the third book in the ongoing mystery series ‘The Falconer Files,’ continuing on with another self-contained mystery. The books don’t need to be read in any particular order as they are stand-alone mysteries, but many of the characters return once again, so it offers a lot for fans.

Taking aim at the lives of the upright citizens of the sleepy village of Steynham St. Michael, a poisonous and anonymous letter writer attacked the residents with their pen. Focusing on their past, the residents began to take desperate measures to escape the words of this particular individual, including murder. In the village cards-club that met up weekly, they began to gossip over who may and may not have received a letter. Where would the letter-writer turn to next, what actions would the residents take to escape exposure, and just who was inkier than the sword?

It’s another really fun mystery novel, making for an intriguing and inventive story that’s a compelling take on the mystery genre. Building upon the world from before, it’s self-contained, and every element is sure to keep the reader guessing and on the edge of their seat. Well paced too, its story moved along at a brisk pace, allowing the reader to fully invest themselves in the world and action.

Snowballs and Scotch Mist

Brought out through the ‘Accent Press’ outlet once more, this came out on the 19th of March back in 2013. Marking the third book in the ‘Belchester Chronicles’ series of novels, this carried on in a similar vein to before. Each book provides a self-contained mystery for its leading protagonist of Lady Amanda Golightly to solve, as they can be read as stand-alone titles.

Receiving an invitation to spend Burns’ Night up in the Castle Rumdrummond based in Scotland, Lady Amanda Golightly was initially not too thrilled at the idea. That’s when her friend Hugo pleaded with her to attend with him, so they headed up there together, as her manservant Beauchamp also accompanied them both. During their trip though, a murder took place, and they soon found they had to uncover an intricate mystery of intrigue. Would they all be able to find out who done it, could they stop the killer from striking again, and what would become of all the snowballs and Scotch mist?

With Scotland providing the perfect backdrop to this particular mystery, it’s a well-told story that instantly grabs its audience. The characters were all well developed too, with each of the arcs progressing from the previous stories in the series. It also managed to some great world-building once again, really bringing the life of Lady Amanda Golightly to life.
