Priscilla Masters is the author of more than twenty crime novels – ten featuring Detective Inspector Joanna Piercy, set in the town of Leek and the surrounding Staffordshire Moorlands – and one historical romantic mystery.
Mr Bateman's Garden, her only children's book, is set in the Victorian gardens of Biddulph Grange in Staffordshire – an amazing Victorian creation by James Bateman to showcase his collection of plants from around the world, which includes the oldest surviving golden larch in Britain, brought from China in the 1850s.
