Heroine’s of History – Dorothy L Sayers

As you may or may not know; I love a good detective novel. Particularly those set in the ‘Golden Age’ of crime fiction between the two World Wars (1919-1940). Whilst I admire and love Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot books (I’m not much of a a fan of her Miss. Marple books) by far my most favorite female author from this period is Dorothy Leigh Sayers or Dorothy L. Sayers as she is better known. Dorothy L. Sayers is famous for the Lord Peter Wimsey detective novels which also feature Harriet Vane the crime fiction writer and some would argue a parody of Sayers herself (alas to the best of my knowledge I am not related to the great woman herself!)
