Overview

“Miss Havisham Regrets” is one of eleven original Dickens-inspired tales first appearing in DEATH BY DICKENS, edited by Anne Perry. “Miss Havisham in particular has passed into legend,” says Perry in her introduction to the anthology. “It is hard to think that she did not really live, except in the minds of countless people: readers, actors, scriptwriters, and viewers. She is the embodiment of loss frozen in time. See a different side of her in Marcia Talley’s alternative ending to GREAT EXPECTATIONS, one which you may find you like very much.”

Marcia Talley's Agatha and Anthony award-winning short stories have appeared in more than a dozen collections, including anthologies edited by New York Times best-selling authors Lawrence Block, Elizabeth George, Laura Lippman, and Anne Perry. They have been selected for inclusion in The World's Finest Mystery and Crime Stories and The Deadly Bride and 21 of the Year's Finest Crime and Mystery Stories, edited by Ed Gorman and Martin H. Greenberg.

Marcia Talley is the author of ALL THINGS UNDYING and eight previous mystery novels featuring survivor and sleuth, Hannah Ives. Hannah's tenth adventure, A QUIET DEATH, will be published in the summer of 2011 by Severn House.

Marcia Talley is the author of ALL THINGS UNDYING and eight previous mystery novels featuring survivor and sleuth, Hannah Ives. Hannah's tenth adventure, A QUIET GRAVE, will be published in the summer of 2011 by Severn House.

Marcia Talley's Agatha and Anthony award-winning short stories have appeared in more than a dozen collections, including anthologies edited by New York Times best-selling authors Lawrence Block, Elizabeth George, Laura Lippman, and Anne Perry. They have been selected for inclusion in "The World's Finest Mystery and Crime Stories" and "The Deadly Bride and 21 of the Year's Finest Crime and Mystery Stories," edited by Ed Gorman and Martin H. Greenberg.

"My mother was an avid mystery fan, and a charter subscriber to Ellery Queen's Mystery magazine, so mysteries were always around the house," Marcia told a Philadelphia newspaper. "I was also a great fan of that old television show, 'Alfred Hitchcock Presents' and am grateful that although it appeared on TV late on a Sunday night (a school night--gasp!) I was allowed to stay up to watch it . . . I think my fondness for quirky endings can be traced back directly to Mr. Hitchcock."

Marcia divides her time between Annapolis, Maryland and living aboard an antique sailboat in the Bahamas with a husband who loves to sail and a cat who doesn't.
