Welcome to my author page! Whether you're new to my books or have already read some of them, I'm so pleased that you found your way here. I began my writing life with four historical novels, but the lure of murder mystery finally proved too strong and I began to create my Inspector de Silva mysteries. The series now runs to eleven books with more on the way. They're set in Ceylon, the former name for the island of Sri Lanka, in the 1930s. I'm told by readers that they love the books for their engaging characters, their colourful setting, and their vintage style of mystery. Writing is inevitably quite a solitary occupation, so I love to connect with my readers. I hope you'll sign up to my newsletter at my website,, https://harrietsteel.com, or come and chat on Facebook (Harriet Steel Author) or Twitter (@harrietsteel1). Like Inspector de Silva, I'm a keen gardener and I often share my successes (and failures) as well as snippets about my life in general. I look forward to being in touch. Best wishes, Harriet More about Harriet Steel Harriet Steel is a British author who writes a series of widely praised, atmospheric mysteries in a traditional style. A few years ago, she spent time on the beautiful island of Sri Lanka and this is where they are set, but in the 1930s rather than the modern day, when it was still the British colony of Ceylon. Her love of history, art, and travel influences her writing, and she also published four historical novels before turning to crime. She was born in London but not long afterwards her family moved to a farm in the country where she grew up. She later studied law at Cambridge University and was a lawyer for many years before becoming a writer. She would love to go back in time and spend a day having lunch with Hercule Poirot, tea with Miss Marple, and dinner at the Ritz with Lord Peter Wimsey.
