#1 Bestselling Author of Supernatural Murder Mystery Books
and Best Thrillers Book Awards Finalist!


Paperback or hardcover



"A deliciously supernatural mystery and love story best paired with a glass of a sherry, a crackling fire, and a keen eye for secret messages hidden throughout."

If you enjoy the suspense of Agatha Christie, the cerebral Sherlock Holmes mysteries by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the descriptive writing style of Daphne du Maurier, or the humor of P.G. Wodehouse, you'll adore this supernatural mystery, sprinkled with humor and romance. Watch out for secret messages hidden throughout the text!


Suffering from memory problems in her old age, Hattie Vavaseur is swept off to a curious, old mansion, where she meets the enigmatic and volatile master of the house. With the assistance of a flamboyant medium, she also tries to help discover the murderer of an American salesman. Yet throughout her adventures, Hattie's existence evolves into a single purpose: uncovering the greatest mystery of her past.

Verity Easton Book Cover-4.png

#1 International Kindle Bestseller, Best Thrillers Book Awards Finalist, &
Audible Bestseller!



Paperback or hardcover


"Verity Easton is one of the year's best paranormal thrillers! Wildsmith is a master of world-building. In her hands, 1930s Egypt is a truly visceral place seen through the eyes of a curious and vulnerable child, where every sound and scent comes alive on the page. All aboard for an uncommonly satisfying murder mystery."


Murder and mayhem abound in this thrilling return to the 1930s as a young woman uncovers her connection to the power and magic of her ancient Egyptian ancestors.


Verity is swept away from England to Egypt when her father, a professor at the British Museum, is assigned to discover the final resting place of Nefertiti. This fascinating world helps Verity feel a connection to her dead Egyptian mother like never before. However, her newfound home is rife with mysterious murders. Will Verity be able to discover the source of the violence that surrounds her before it’s too late?


If you enjoy Agatha Christie’s murder mysteries, the mysticism of Sherlock Holmes stories, the descriptive writing style of Daphne du Maurier, or uncovering the secrets of ancient Egypt, you’ll adore this riveting, tragic story.


Although Verity Easton is a standalone novel, one beloved crossover character from my first novel, Hattie Vavaseur, makes a cameo appearance!
