Michelle Salter is a historical crime writer based in Hampshire, United Kingdom. She’s also a copywriter and has written features for national magazines. She brings a love of social history to her novels, which reflect how issues of 100 years ago are not so different from the challenges we face today.

Michelle’s novel, The Suffragette’s Daughter, brings the history of 1920s England alive. The Great War has ended, the suffragettes have disbanded, and life for women is a far cry from the stylised world of the flapper girl.

Iris Woodmore is a local journalist in the small market town of Walden in Hampshire, where she uncovers hidden secrets about a fatal jump and a missing suffragette that lead to an inexplicable murder.

When she’s not writing, Michelle can be found knee-deep in mud at her local nature reserve. She enjoys working with a team of volunteers undertaking conservation activities on land and in water, repairing riverbanks, sloshing around in the marshes, and driving a tractor badly.
