Join us and author Jean Harrod for a fabulously entertaining whistle-stop tour around the world, from embassy to embassy hearing about her wonderfully rich & varied life and the novels that were inspired as a result.

Born and educated in the UK, Jean was employed as a British diplomat for many years, working in Embassies and High Commissions in Australia, Brussels, the Caribbean, China, East Berlin, Indonesia, Mauritius, and Switzerland. She has travelled extensively around the world and writes about all the countries she has lived in.
‘Deadly Diplomacy’, set in Australia, was her debut diplomatic crime novel, and the first of a series featuring diplomat Jess Turner and DI Tom Sangster.
‘Deadly Deceit’, set in the Turks and Caicos Islands, is the second in the series.
‘Missing in Shanghai’, set in London and Shanghai, is the third.
Jean now lives in North Yorkshire. An active contributor to regional theatre, she has written and staged several plays.
