About Elly Griffiths

Elly GriffithsElly Griffiths is a writer and former publisher of children’s books. Her Ruth Galloway novels are inspired by her husband, who gave up a banking job to train as an archaeologist, and her eccentric aunt, a sea captain on the Norfolk coast who filled her niece’s head with the myths and legends of that area. She lives near Brighton, on the English coast.

Griffith’s Ruth Galloway novels have been praised as “gripping” (Louise Penny), “highly atmospheric” (New York Times Book Review), and “must-reads for fans of crime fiction” (Associated Press). She received a nomination for a 2012 Barry award for Best British Fiction for The House at Sea’s End, and is the winner of the 2010 Mary Higgins Clark Award.
