I’m Tessa Buckley. Welcome to my author website. I write mystery and adventure stories for middle grade readers (8-12 years), but adults often enjoy my books as well.

I live near Southend-on-Sea in Essex, with my husband, Gwyn, and a large white cat called Pippa.  I love living by the sea, which is one of the reasons I set the Eye Spy series in an imaginary seaside town, Holcombe Bay. I have my own study, where I can sit and write whilst looking out at our peaceful garden, with just Pippa for company.

By clicking on the links at the top of the page, you can find out more about me You can also find out more about my books and where to buy them here, and read my latest blog here.
