Kansas Author Creates Award-Winning Heroine
Elizabeth C. Bunce's Victorian 12-year old sleuth won the author the 2021 Edgar Award for best juvenile mystery.
The book 'Premediated Myrtle' has received a flood of praise and two sequels have already hit the shelves. Myrtle Hardcastle is a precocious detective with a penchant for science, law, and botany. Says Bunce, "I could happily write nothing but Myrtle Hardcastle mysteries for the rest of my career."
