Ngaio Marsh
Birth: 1895
Death: 1982

Writer of detective fiction from New Zealand. Along with Agatha Christie, she is considered to be one of the main female British crime writers of the 1930s and 1940s. She was born in Christchurch, New Zealand and her first name is a Maori word which translates as ‘Reflections on the water'. Her first love was not writing, but the theatre and in New Zealand she is best remembered for her work on the stage rather than her fiction. From 1928 she split her time between the United Kingdom and New Zealand. All of her works of fiction feature the CID detective Roderick Alleyn and are mainly set in either England or New Zealand. She was knighted as a Dame Commander of the British Empire in 1966. (bio by: Bunny Boiler)
