Most recently Daisy Waugh has published three comic novels. #In the Crypt with a Candlestick# and #Phone for the Fish Knives# are both comic murder-mysteries set at crumbling Tode Hall (the seventh most recognisable, privately-owned stately home in Britain). #Guy Woake's Word Diary# is set at Britain's seventh least recognisable university. It's written in the voice of a politically aware first year student who takes offence at almost everything and is determined to change the world.

Daisy has also written three historical novels set in early 20th Century USA; a commentary on the madness of modern motherhood #I Don't Know Why She Bothers#, several chick lit novels, and a travelogue about her life as teacher in Northern Kenya #A Small Town in Africa#. She has written weekly columns for several newspapers and magazines including the Sunday Times, the Times, Standpoint, the Sunday Independent, the Sunday Express and the Indy. She has previously worked as an agony aunt, and currently doubles up as a Tarot reader.

Daisy Waugh's Tarot Detective novels are published under the name EV HARTE - to buy her Tarot Detective Novels please look under EV HARTE.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Modern Day County House Murder
Reviewed in the United States on September 30, 2021
In the Crypt with a Candlestick
By Daisy Waugh @daisywaughauthor @pegasus_books

In the Crypt with a Candlestick by Daisy Waugh is a modern day twist on a country house murder mystery.
The books dark sarcasm, and perfectly hateable characters make for madcap whodunnit. The book is definitely character driven and light on the mystery. The dysfunctional ridiculous laugh out loud family dynamics made for a fast read.
