Born in Glasgow, Scotland on June 10th, 1936 the great Marion Chesney blessed the world with some incredible novels over the years.

Marion passed on December 30th, 2019 at the age of 83.

Many will know Marion under pen name – M.C. Beaton. Under this pen name, she created two incredibly popular series in the Hamish MacBeth series and the Agatha Raisin series.

Both book series had TV adaptations.

Marion had numerous other pen names over the years such as Ann Fairfax and Jennie Tremaine. However the M.C. Beaton pseudonym proved the most popular to the point that Marion republished the majority of her novels – including ones written by her real name – as M.C. Beaton.

Below is a list of novels that Marion has written. Please note two things:

(1) We have listed books or series under the original author were possible.
(2) Marion had different listings of her series for the UK audience and US audience. We have listed books in their original order which was for the UK audience.
