About the Author
Catherine Mayo grew up in Auckland and was a compulsive reader and dreamer. With academics in her DNA (her dad was a research scientist and her grandfather a professor of philosophy) it was taken for granted she would go to university. She studied many things at Auckland University - history, philosophy, geology, French, music, performance violin and art history - before life took an unexpected turn and she began an apprenticeship in violin making and restoration. About 10 years ago she started writing, urged on by the stories and dreams that filled her head since she was a child. She has since won several prizes in short story competitions. Murder at Mykenai is her first book.
