Sheila Connolly

A former art historian, investment banker, nonprofit fund-raiser, and genealogist, New York Times bestselling author Sheila Connolly began writing in 2001 and is now a full-time writer. She wrote her first mystery series for Berkley Prime Crime under the name Sarah Atwell, and the first book, Through a Glass, Deadly, was nominated for an Agatha Award for Best First Novel; Pane of Death followed, and then Snake in the Glass.

Under her own name, her Orchard Mystery Series (Berkley Prime Crime) debuted with One Bad Apple, followed by Rotten to the Core, Red Delicious Death, A Killer Crop, Bitter Harvest, Sour Apples, Golden Malicious, Picked to Die, and A Gala Event.

Her Museum Mysteries (Berkley Prime Crime), set in the Philadelphia museum community, opened with Fundraising the Dead, followed by Let's Play Dead, Fire Engine Dead, "Dead Letters," Monument to the Dead, Razing the Dead, and Privy to the Dead.

Her new series, the County Cork Mysteries (Berkley Prime Crime), debuted with Buried in a Bog, followed by Scandal in Skibbereen, An Early Wake, and A Turn for the Bad.

She has published ten original ebooks with Beyond the Page: the novels Once She Knew, Reunion with Death, Relatively Dead, Seeing the Dead, Defending the Dead, and Watch for the Dead; and the short stories "Called Home," "The Rising of the Moon," "Under the Hill," and "A Necessary Death."
