Biography of Ruth Rendell

Considered by many as the finest crime writer of all time, Ruth Rendell's chilling observations of city and suburban atmospheres produce works that straddle the gap between crime fiction and great literature. The creator of Inspector Wexford has won many awards including four Gold Daggers and three Edgar Allen Poe's. Her books, which can often be macabre and shocking, divide into three types: police procedurals featuring Inspector Wexford; studies of abnormal psychology, which include such unforgettable books as The Lake of Darkness and A Judgement in Stone; and the novels she began publishing during the 1980s as Barbara Vine.

Now a Life Peer in the House of Lords, Rendell was born in 1930. Her parents were teachers and her father had previously worked in a Plymouth dockyard before going to university. She worked originally as a reporter and later sub-editor of several local newspapers but left journalism after her marriage and the birth of her son. Her first novel From Doon with Death, introducing Inspector Reginald Wexford, was published in 1964. By the mid 1990s, she had produced nearly 50 crime novels, translated into 22 languages and loved worldwide.
