Carmel McMurdo Audsley

Biography

Carmel McMurdo Audsley is an Australian Journalist and Author who lives in Brisbane with her husband Iain. Carmel's first three books were historical fiction novels based on her family's history in Scotland. She received glowing reviews from readers who were moved by the stories of people in the south-west of Scotland.  Her fourth novel The Undertaker, about a young female undertaker in Edinburgh in 1858, proved popular and readers asked for a sequel.  The Undertaker:Masquerade was published in 2017 and a third instalment in the series is planned. The Last Hurrah was a departure from her historical fiction novels.  It is a contemporary novella about a terminally ill couple who have become isolated from their adult children.  Murder In The Bush, her latest novel, is based on the true story of a young man who travels to Australia from Scotland in 1885, and dies in bizarre circumstances.
