G.M. Malliet won the Agatha Award for Death of a Cozy Writer, which initially won the Malice Domestic grant.
Death of a Cozy Writer was chosen by Kirkus Reviews as one of the Best Books of 2008. It was nominated for the Anthony Award and the Macavity Award (best first novel), shortlisted for the 2009 Left Coast Crime/Hawaii Five-O Award (best police procedural), and awarded a Silver Medal IPPY (best mystery/suspense/thriller). It was also nominated for a David Award for Best Mystery Novel.
The second book in the St. Just series is Death and the Lit Chick (April 2009), which received a starred review from both Publishers Weekly and the American Library Association's Booklist. It was also nominated for an Anthony Award. The third book in the series is Death at the Alma Mater (January 2010).
In June 2011, her short story "Bookworm" was nominated for a Macavity Award. This story first appeared in the 4th Chesapeake Crimes anthology.
Malliet is currently at work on a new series for Thomas Dunne/Minotaur Books. The first book in the new series is the Agatha-nominated WICKED AUTUMN (September 2011), which received starred reviews from Booklist and Library Journal. Library Journal and the Boston Globe also named it a Best Mystery of 2011: "Sly humor rivals Jane Austen’s."
WICKED AUTUMN also has been chosen by Shelf Awareness book review editor Marilyn Dahl as one of the top ten books of 2011. In addition to being nominated for a 2012 Agatha Award for best traditional mystery novel of 2011, it was one of five books short-listed for the 2012 Dilys Award.
The New York Times' Marilyn Stasio describes it as "executed in high style and with good humor."
Malliet, an inveterate traveler, did post-graduate work at Oxford University after earning a graduate degree from the University of Cambridge, the setting for the St. Just mysteries. She has lived in places ranging from Japan and Hawaii to Europe, but she most enjoyed living in the U.K. She now lives with her husband in a house near the Potomac in Washington, D.C., but takes frequent fact-finding missions to the E.U. and elsewhere. She writes full time and is currently writing a screenplay in addition to her mystery novels and short stories.
