Medieval Mystery Books Mix History & Fantasy
Mary Malloy is not your typical fiction author. A maritime historian and teacher, she authored scholarly works on American maritime history and antiquities before trying her hand at fiction. Even though her Lizzie Manning Mystery trilogy is set in present day, the books take the reader on a journey through historical periods, provide facts about historical figures and also shed light on the research process from the perspective of a historian. The heroine of the story is an academic with a passion for history and research.
