News and Features
Great news! My latest #AllotmentNoir book is finished and awaiting publication. Watch this space...
The next book is about half-way written. Exciting stuff.
Due to the pandemic, research has been strictly the indoor kind. Hopefully I can get to new places soon for some field work.

What I'm reading
2021 continues where we left off with the horrible Coronavirus, but it has started really well in terms of books I've read. Two outstanding ones are The Burning Girls by C.J. Tudor and Girl A by Abigail Dean. Both fabulously well-written and writers to watch, no doubt there.
In 2021 I will attempt to read the many great classics that, so far, are not in my 'read' list. I have one of those 'Top 100 Books' posters to get through. Thanks, Santa! The first from the list is Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro, followed by The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger.
