By June 13, 2017December 16th, 2017Authors, Quotations

Dorothy L. Sayers (13th of June 1893 to 17th of December 1957) was an English playwright, crime fiction writer, and poet. She is famous for her series of mystery novels set between the two world wars featuring Lord Peter Wimsey, an amateur sleuth/aristocrat.

Her wisdom and way with words also awarded her a place in advertising. The famous Guinness brand hired her for their promotions in the 20th century. Sayers’ jingle was added to the bottom of the now-famous Guinness toucan advertisement.


As well as a celebratory blue plaque on 23 & 24 Great James Street, London, Sayers is honoured with a statue opposite her home in Witham.
