Leah Devlin is the author of two murder mystery series, The Woods Hole Mysteries and The Cheasapeake Bay Tug Boat Murders. A biologist, at home on the water as well as the classroom, Devlin brings her unique passion for the sea, pirates, and complex murder mysteries to life in her compelling series.
Leah Devlin is a mystery writer and marine biologist of Swedish-Irish descent who grew up in the Washington DC area. She's a left-handed, middle child of five spirited siblings and the daughter of an artist mother and engineer father, which explains just about everything. The Woods Hole Mysteries, consisting of The Bottom Dwellers, Ægir’s Curse and The Bends , focus on the misadventures of a brilliant yet tormented Nobel Laureate-inventor in the real-life village of Woods Hole, Massachusetts, where Leah was a scientist at the Marine Biological Laboratory for over ten summers.
Leah's thrilled to introduce her new Chesapeake Tugboat Murders, beginning with the release of Vital Spark. This series combines Leah's love of mysteries with the Chesapeake Bay's fascinating history of piracy. These mysteries are set in fictional River Glen, a quirky fishing village and site of a 1680s pirate massacre which, centuries later, unsettles the odd array of villagers. Vital Spark's sequel, Spider, is about experiments-gone-wrong with poisonous spiders at a local college.
When not writing mystery-thrillers, Leah enjoys dancing and outdoor adventures of all kinds: motorcycle journeys along winding back roads, boating, diving, rock-climbing, skiing, and long-distance trekking. She divides her time between Philadelphia and her mini-tugboat on the Chesapeake.
