Mary Lawrence, author of The Alchemist’s Daughter, is the fifth author to appear in the Meet the Author Series sponsored by the NCC Friends of the Library. Mary is the author of the Bianca Goddard Mysteries featuring the daughter of an infamous alchemist. Set in Tudor London during the final years of Henry VIII’s reign, the series follows Bianca in her pursuit of science to create medicines to help the sick. Along the way, Bianca must deal with a most unhealthy dose of murder and mayhem. The first in her series, The Alchemist’s Daughter (Kensington, 2015) was named by Suspense Magazine as a “Best Book of 2015″ in the historical mystery category and was on Amazon’s top 100 best-selling historical mysteries for two months. Book two, Death of an Alchemist, was released in February 2016 and her upcoming title, Death at St. Vedast will be released in 2017. Mary worked in the medical field for over 25 years before publishing her debut mystery. She also runs a small berry farm with her husband. Learn more about her books at
