Medora Sale / Caroline Roe
As Medora Sale, Caroline Roe has written six police procedurals, including an Arthur Ellis Award winner. These books are set in and about Toronto and feature homicide detective John Sanders and architectural photographer Harriet Jeffries. As Caroline Roe, Medora used her PhD research on religious diversity in medieval times to re-create the character of the Bishop of Girona's Jewish physician, a 14th-century doctor with important patients and a nose for wrong-doing.
Medora is a past president of both Crime Writers of Canada and the international board of Sisters in Crime. She lives in Toronto with her husband, Harry, when they are not researching background material in Spain.
