Hello,  I'm Carol Yeomanson.  I write mysteries for Amazon Kindle and Kobo.   I live in London, UK with my husband and son.  My son is a Freeman of the City of London as well as being a member of the Guild of Freemen of the City of London.  He is also my Editor.  


I love to write mysteries and I build my characters purely from my imagination.  Maybe I'm just lucky and it's a gift I have as the old saying goes!.  I can be sitting 'somewhere' and an idea for a new book literally does pop into my head.  Take, for instance,  Speakeasy Days.  I was on holiday on a cruise ship.  I was eating breakfast in the ship's buffet with my husband and son, eating a couple of sausages  - no laughing please - and we were overlooking a small harbour where some very nasty pointed pieces of wood were sticking out of the sea.  Phrase to son - 'be nasty if someone threw a body on them - nasty way to die!'. Hence - Speakeasy Days was born.  Call me a maniac - but I literally do walk around with paper and a pen ready to jot down any ideas that pop into my head.  Some people collect recipes - I collect ways to kill people !.


Apart from writing mysteries I love to read them.  I've got my favourite authors.  I love M.C. Beaton, Agatha Christie, Scott Marinari, Conrad Jones and Toby Oliver. When I'm not writing, I love to craft.  Give me a few balls of wool and a crochet hook and a pair of knitting needles and I'm happy for hours.  It's my way of relazing.


I'll be up-dating my web site regularly with all my news..  Please contact me with any ideas or comments and I'll always get back to you.  My readers are important to me - after all without you, there would be no point to my books.
