If you’re yearning to travel, the Beatrice Stubbs series will satisfy.
Jill Marsh’s Detective Inspector Beatrice Stubbs is fighting battles with crime, as well as with her own mind. Beatrice has bipolar disorder and that has an effect on her work. Jill shares in our interview that she wanted Beatrice to be a real person with real-life problems and challenges, not a superhero character.
When Jill’s readers asked for the background on Beatrice and her mental illness Jill obliged by writing the free prequel to the series, Black Dogs, Yellow Butterflies, which you can get here.
Jill also mentions that the European locations of the Beatrice Stubbs mysteries provide a special challenge as every country and police force has their own procedures.
