Bringing out her first novel in 2017 she made her debut with the title ‘Uniformly Dead’. This would also be the first in her long-running ‘A Stitch in Time Mystery’ novels too. Set firmly within the cozy mystery genre, she really managed to make them stand-out and their own thing.

With scores of readers worldwide discovering them, she has quickly translated herself into a global success.

With her brother being accused of the theft and a bridal client’s fiance being accused of the murder, it appears that it’s up to Daria to solve the case in hand. Will she be able to get to the bottom of it? Can she uncover the truth? Who is behind the uniformly dead?
