About the Author
Beth Hilgartner was born in Baltimore and is now a deacon of the Episcopal Church in Barre, Vermont. A MURDER FOR HER MAJESTY was inspired by her experiences singing in a church choir and her interest in the early Elizabethan period. Her husband, Ernest Drown, is a church organist who in no way resembles the grouchy Master Kenton.
