An Interview with Author M.E. Kemp: Bringing the Puritans to Vibrant Life in Her Fiction

"For Marilyn Kemp, pre-revolutionary American history is every bit as interesting and bloody as any medieval story. She proves it with her series of mysteries based on New England Puritans and their lives. Beginning with 'Murder, Mather and Mayhem' in 2004, she has delivered murder in the colonies with an arch attitude under the pen name M.E. Kemp.

Why does she choose this setting? She wants to correct the myth of Puritans as being boring old sticks-in-the-mud and reveal them as the lively, sensory-oriented people she has discovered through her research."
