Roz Watkins

Roz Watkins biography

Roz is the author of the DI Meg Dalton crime series. She lives on the edge of the Peak District, where the series is set. (Meg lives just down the road in Belper, and the fictional town Eldercliffe was inspired by nearby Wirksworth.)

Before she started writing, Roz worked as a partner in a firm of patent attorneys in Derby, but of course this has nothing to do with there being a dead one in her first novel!

Roz is also a qualified animal trainer, and her dog Starsky accompanies her on walks, checking out potential murder locations and hoping to find a body. All her animals are a great help.

Since writing took over Roz’s life, her partner runs their two small holiday cottages, Pendleton Cottage and Sparrows Roost.
