Several years ago I read and very much enjoyed a mystery series written by Marianne MacDonald. Her protagonist was Dido Hoare, an independent 32-year-old London woman with a recently-failed marriage, a skeptical father (Barnabas Hoare, Emeritus Professor of English at Oxford University) who is keeping a pessimistic eye on her personal affairs, and Mr Spock, her resident ginger tabby – the one with the pointy ears. Dido is earning her living as a book dealer with her own small shop; and on the night when we meet her she is driving home along a dark country road with a carload of old books for which she has just paid too much: ‘Dido Hoare, the world-famous-soft-touch antiquarian book dealer.’
I really liked these books! Enough that I own them in hardcover.

My question is this…
Where is she now?
According to her website, her last publisher was Severn House.
Does anyone know any current information about this author?
Have you read any of the Dido Hoare mysteries?
