About the Author

Having always had a love for English, Salema qualified to teach it as a foreign language and then went abroad to work in Lebanon. She taught adults at a language centre and eventually ended up helping at a school on the site of an orphanage where she met her husband. She wrote about the plight of the orphans and the article was published in the centre-spread of a Christian newspaper.
Salema has been obsessed with whodunits since she was a teenager and was challenged to write her own by her sister Jess. Not knowing where to start she took herself off to college to do a crime writing course with published crime authors Lesley Thomson and Elly Griffiths and hasn’t looked back since.
She currently lives in West Sussex where she takes care of her husband, two children and two cats (not necessarily in that order!).

This book is thoroughly enjoyable and right up my street. Vintage murder mystery set in an under water folly, which actually exists and has its being in leafy Surrey. From the author's page I could see that she was influenced by Agatha Christie and Enid Blyton. A funny combination, but I could see both of those authors reflected in the content of the story. Funny bumbling constable much like Mr Goon from the Five Find Outers, and yet there were also a couple of sinister scenes that scared me deliciously without being gory. I can't recommend it highly enough and am already waiting for the next book to be published. I hope the author continues in the same genre as she has got it entirely right. Try as i might, I did not guess the identity of the murderer.

I saw a few reviews for The Folly Under the Lake and they were all 5 stars so I decided to download a copy and give it a read. I'm so happy I did, it has fast-tracked its way to becoming my favourite whodunit story. The setting was unique, an underwater conservatory (or folly) where the guests of a weekend house party went to spend their time. However, someone (I wont say who) is spotted, dead and entangled in the pond weeds on top of the roof and staring down into the room. Spine chillingly delicious. It isn't gory, but in line with Agatha Christie whodunits. A bit of a spine tingling moment (there are more than one) with comedic interludes. The perfect balance to get your sleuthing juices going. By the way, I didn't guess the identity of the murderer. I don't often, and really thought I had got it this time, even becoming quite blase about it, but to no avail. This author is going to go from strength to strength if her first novel is anything to go by. Fabulous.
