Gillian De Vries

Gillian de Vries grew up in rural Dorset, England, where her roots are still deeply attached. The family emigrated to Australia and, on leaving high school, she joined the Royal Australian Navy in which she spent twelve happy years, including three in America.

She returned to England several times over the years before she took the opportunity to spend four years studying writing and editing in Australia. Some time later, after working in a university, she returned to England. She has written a number of articles and short stories. She also edits a National Trust property's monthly newsletter, while an earlier, unpublished, novel is undergoing revision. The Strathvern Secrets is her first published novel.


  • The Strathvern Secrets


    In the Highlands of Scotland, mystery surrounds the death of Farley Orman, a landscape photographer and passionate environmental campaigner, determined to conserve Scotland's natural beauty and heritage.
