Emylia Hall is a bestselling author of romance, cozy mystery, and general fiction novels.
“The Book of Summers,” which was her debut fiction novel was inspired by her childhood holidays. It is a coming-of-age work of fiction that she first published in 2012.

The novel went on to become wildly popular and it was translated into at least eight languages. It was a reader’s favorite read of the summer and a Judy and Richard book club selection.

Hall has now published more than seven works of fiction with several more in the pipeline. Most of her works are set in the Tuscan isle of Elba, the far west of Cornwall, the Swiss Riviera, and rural Hungary.
As such, these are works strongly driven by how an interest in place, landscape, and travel can help shape identity.

Over the years, her short fiction and other writing have been featured in a range of publications including “Too Much Too Young” the Book Slam anthology, “Elle Magazine,” and broadcast on Radio 6 Music on the BBC.
Outside of her writing, she has been a tutor of creative writing workshops at the University of Lausanne and Kigali, Zurich.

Emylia also works for the Womentoring Project as a volunteer mentor, is a regular tutor for Arvon, and is a passionate believer in writing as one of the best ways to have enriched life experiences.

Hall was born and brought up in Devon County, England. The village she grew up in was a tiny smattering of cottages spread across a valley with the sea a few minutes drive away.

Since she lived in a very tiny village, her first school had no more than forty kids. Emylia still remembers how the headmaster used to sometimes let the children go on endless nature walks and play sports on summer afternoons.
As a twelve-year-old, all she desired was to become a Wimbledon champion but when she was eighteen all she wanted to date a Wimbledon champion.

When she was older, she did her A levels at a local state school in Exeter, which was hardly a city, but it whetted her appetite for a life in the big metropolises of Europe.
Following her studies in Lausanne, Switzerland, and at York University, Emylia Hall spent half a decade working for an advertising agency in London, before she moved to the Alps.
It was while she was living in Morzine the French ski town as a thirty-year-old that she began writing the manuscript for her debut novel.

Following spells in the French Alps and London, she is now back home in Bristol and enjoying life in the West Country with her husband and son.

In 2019, Emylia Hall founded the groundbreaking program “Mothership Writers,” which allows new mothers to use creative and expressive writing to explore their motherhood experiences.

Through the organization, she has published three titles including “Mothership Writers Notebook,” “Born in Lockdown” a collaborative writing project, and “Dispatches from New Motherhood,” an Arts Council-funded anthology.
Between 2018 and 2020, she was granted a University of the West of England Royal Literary Fund fellowship.

When Emylia Hall is not busy at her desk, she can often be found planning her next trip to the Cornwall coast and indulging in her new passion for surf skating.

Emylia Hall’s “The Shell House Detectives” is a thoroughly enjoyable and cleverly plotted novel about beautiful places where dark deeds happen. The work is set in Porthpella a coastal paradise where there is murder among the dunes.
Late one night, a young man knocks on the door of Ally Bright a recently widowed and retired woman living on the Cornish coast.

Before she can make any sense of the young man’s confused words, he leaves and is never seen again until his body is found the following morning below some seaside cliffs.

Ally’s beachcombing life is shattered in an instant as she feels responsible for the young man and desperately needs to find answers. Jayden Weston is an ex cop at the scene who also believes there is more to the story than what the police have declared.
It soon comes out that the dead young man in Lewis Pascoe is a newly released ex-offender. It is also discovered that the wealthy new owner of his grandmother’s house named Helena has also gone missing.

These revelations throw the little community into turmoil and it is up to Ally and Jayden to investigate and get to the bottom of the mystery. They need to find out if there is a killer in Porthpella and stop him if he intends to kill again.

Emylia Hall’s novel “The Harbour Lights Mystery” opens with detectives from Shell House attempting to solve a family mystery, only to find that their investigations seem to run dangerously close to a homicide case.
The work is set in Cornwall in December and Mousehole Harbor is brightly lit with its world-famous holiday lights.

Ally Bright is among the many people listening to Christmas carols when she hears a blood-curdling scream in the darkness. When they get out they find the body of chef JP Sharpe brutally murdered and the body parts left in a fisherman’s boat.
The complication is that the list of people who may have wanted him dead is very long.

Ally of The Shell House Detectives invites Jayden the ex-cop but he does not seem interested until a letter is found in the dead man which drags them into what is a seemingly unrelated mystery.
Going on what soon turns into a highly charged mission, they cannot help but start looking into homicide suspects. There is someone in the small close-knit community with hate enough to kill who will do anything to protect themselves.
With fear spreading, Jayden and Ally need answers fast.

“The Rockpool Murder” by Emylia Hall is all about a shocking death and a stunning Cornish house.

Baz Carson is a music legend who welcomes his closest family and friends to Rockpool House to celebrate his seventieth birthday while looking down on stunning views of the Cornish coast.
However, the festivities come to an untimely end when Baz is found floating dead while fully clothed in the house’s swimming pool.

Tallula who is his first love and a boho-chic Californian believes it was not an accident. The man had just published a comprehensive memoir and the list of people he may have offended is very long.
However, there had only been eight guests at the gated luxury home. As such, Tallula enlists the help of Jayden Weston the ex-cop and Ally Bright to get to the truth in a case that will push them to their limits as they hunt down a killer hiding in plain sight.
