Author's Bio

Lyn Hamilton

Lyn Hamilton is the author of a successful series of archaeological mysteries published by Berkley Prime Crime in New York. The series, the first of which, The Xibalba Murders, was nominated for the prestigious Arthur Ellis Awards for best first crime novel in Canada, features the peripatetic sleuth, antiques dealer Lara McClintoch. Lara travels the world in search of the rare and beautiful for her store, finding more than a little murder and mayhem along the way. Each of the novels is set in a different, and exotic, location, and draws on the ancient past in a unique way.

A long time student of archaeology and mythology, Lyn brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the series. As former Director of the Cultural Programs branch of the Ontario government, she was responsible for the licensing of all archaeology in the province, as well as for museum and conservation programs. She visits all of the exotic sites she writes about, and in 1999 led The Maltese Goddess mystery and archaeology tour to Malta to visit the scene of the crime. Lyn, like Lara, is something of an antiques addict.

Lyn's mysteries have been translated into German, Italian, Spanish, Hebrew, Turkish and Russian, and will soon be available in Chinese.
