Born and raised in Liverpool (UK), VL McBeath (Val) initially trained as a scientist and worked in the pharmaceutical industry for many years.
It was only more recently that a passion for family history caused her to stumble upon a story that needed telling and ultimately led to her career as an author.
A Deadly Tonic is an introductory novella for a new series of murder mysteries: Eliza Thomson Investigates. The next three books in the series will be released at approximately four weekly intervals over the summer of 2019.
Val now lives in Cheshire with her husband and cat, Lia. In addition to family history, her interests include rock music and Premier League Football.
