M. L. Longworth

Mary Lou Longworth was born in Canada. She moved with her husband to France in 1997, and after a few years ended up settling down in Aix-en-Provence. Having fallen in love with the area, she started writing non-fiction articles that were published in places like the Washington Post. She eventually graduated to writing crime novels centered in Aix. Similar in some ways to the Bruno books by Martin Walker, Longworth’s stories revolve around a Chief Inspector of police (Antoine Verlaq) and his on-again-off-again love interest who is a law professor (Marine Bonnet).
