Martha Grimes is an American author of detective fiction.She was born May 2 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to D.W., a city solicitor, and to June, who owned the Mountain Lake Hotel in Western Maryland where Martha and her brother spent much of their childhood.

Each of the Jury mysteries is named after a pub. Her page-turning, character-driven tales fall into the mystery subdivision of cozies. In 1983, Grimes received the Nero Wolfe Award for best mystery of the year for The Anodyne Necklace.The background to Hotel Paradise is drawn on the experiences she enjoyed spending summers at her mothers hotel in Mountain Lake Park, Maryland. One of the characters, Mr Britain, is drawn on Britten Leo Martin, Sr, who then ran Martis Store which he owned with his father and brother.

Martins Store is accessible by a short walkway from Mountain Lake, the site of the former Hotel, which was torn down in 1967.She splits her time between homes in Washington, D.C., and Santa Fe, New Mexico.
