As to character, particularly her constable hero, Beaton told Connie Fletcher in an interview for Booklist that “Hamish Macbeth represents the nicer part of the Highland character and is based on several people I have known.

C. Beaton’s long-running series. But Macbeth is humble by design; he masks his abilities and his intellect, so that he won’t be promoted out of his comfortable setting to a more urban environment. Macbeth is one of two popular mystery series characters created by Beaton—the other is Agatha Raisin. Beaton is not a real person. It is a pseudonym used by Marion Chesney. Chesney wrote a string of Regency romances under her real name and has written as Ann Fairfax, Jennie Tremaine, Helen Crampton, and Charlotte Ward.

He relocated to New York City, where he was a bartender and a room service waiter before he landed a two-year contract with television producers Grosso-Jacobson 36 Giles Blunt 37 to write screenplays (including the pilot for Diamonds). His first book, Cold Eye (1989), is set against the New York art scene.
