I'm sure (but can't find) I saw somewhere that Lomer is her maiden name, and Lide her married name, but don't quote me on that. Why FK was published under both names I'm not sure- UK/US differences again?
Just found this bit- maybe Mary Clayton is her real name?
"Mary Clayton was born and brought up in Cornwall, and read History at Oxford University. After university she went to America as a Fulbright English-Speaking Union Fellow to Ann Arbor, Michigan, where she taught in the History Department. She has lived in England, Denmark and Italy, and now divides her time between America and Europe.
As Mary Lide and Mary Lomer, the author has written historical novels and sagas.
Mary Clayton's previous novels featuring ex-Inspector John Reynolds, Pearls Before Swine, Dead Men's Bones, The Prodigal's Return and The Word is Death.."
