Short biography
In the 1990s, Janet Quin-Harkin (best-selling author of books for teens, including the Boyfriend Club) turned to writing mystery novels for adults under the name Rhys Bowen. She currently writes two series under this name, one featuring an Irish immigrant, Molly Murphy, living in early 1900's New York City, and one featuring a Welsh police constable named Evan Evans. Quin-Harkin is married and the parent of four children.

Since the above was written, she has added a third series (beginning 2007) featuring Lady Georgina Rannoch, 34th in line to the throne (give or take a birth or death) called Her Royal Spyness.

She is married and the parent of four children.
