Frequently Asked Questions
What are you currently working on?
I have just finished Growing In Damp Places, which was published on 1 March 2021. Working on a book also set in Burton-upon-Trent, with links to the past. It features cows and old buildings. Watch this space or sign up to be the first to read it!
Will you review my book?
We do not offer a free book review service at this time. Our team are massive readers and we share the reviews online but it is not a service we offer. Also it is policy not to read books without a publishing deal in case I get accused of stealing ideas!
can i leave a post or link on your site?
We no longer run advertisements or promotions on the site.
do you ever get WRITER'S block?
No, never (fingers crossed!) I put this down to having a very strict structure where I plan everything before I start writing. Sometimes I am stuck for ideas but it doesn't last long.
why did you choose the dark ages as the setting for some of your books?
The Early Medieval Period or Migration Period (as historians prefer these days) is fascinating for many reasons, one being that we don't know much about that time - so it's a blank canvas for authors. Other favourite periods are early 20th century at the time of the Great War, and the 18th century at the time of the Enlightenment. These are periods I studied at university.
