Meet the Author

Francis Matthews was born on September 2, 1927, in Yorkshire, England. In addition to his audiobook work, in 2005 Matthews played the role of Ted in the TV series All About George.

Biography

"Like Alice, I try to believe three impossible things before breakfast" -- Margery Allingham

Margery Allingham took to writing naturally, finishing her first novel while still a teenager. But it was with The Crime at Dudley Black, written in 1928, that she made her first significant mark on the crime-writing landscape. Introducing the character of Albert Campion, mild-mannered amateur detective and gentleman, she had given birth to a new style of sleuth: well-rounded, insightful and thoroughly entertaining. "To Albert Campion has fallen the honour of being the first detective to feature in a story which is also by any standard a distinguished novel," commented The Observer.

A prolific writer, she continued to produce books right up until her death in 1966, enjoying huge success on both sides of the Atlantic.
