Emily D. Seeton, also known as Miss Seeton or MissEss, is the fictional heroine of a series of British cosy mystery novels by Heron Carvic, Roy Peter Martin writing as Hampton Charles, and Sarah J. Mason writing as Hamilton Crane. Cosy Mysteries lists the books as the "Retired British Art Teacher in England Series".
Miss Seeton inadvertently draws psychologically and, perhaps, psychically informative sketches that allow Inspector Delphick and his assistant Bob Ranger to solve the crime. The primary plot element is Miss Seeton finding herself in an awkward situation as a result of logical and ladylike actions.
