Re: RARA-AVIS: Minette Walters

From: Etienne Borgers (

Here's what I know through several sources: Minette Walters was born in 1949 Her first book was published in 1992, and won an Award, as did the two following: THE ICE HOUSE (1992)- John Creasey Award, Best first novel THE SCULPTRESS (1993? ) - American Edgar Award, 1994 THE SCOLD'S BRIDLE (1994) - Gold Dagger Award (UK)


She does not do series (at least until now). Years of publication (based on the UK) have to be double checked and, as far as I know, she has published 6 novels (until 2000?) and 1 novella, but I do not have the complete list. BBC adapted a few of her novels for TV.

Hope this helps?
