Welcome to the Blog!

Updated: Apr 20

Welcome to the blog! I am so glad you stopped by. It’s great to meet others interested in medieval and early modern historical fiction.

A wise author and book marketer, Fauzia Burke, told me that blogs should be useful to the reader. The question that followed, of course, is what can I offer that is useful? \

I am a recovering academic. My day job keeps me deep in libraries, databases, and special collections. I know not everyone has the time and, if I am honest, the ability to self-indulge in all the bookish things I can.

In this blog, I'll take you behind the scenes of my writing process, exploring the meticulous research that goes into each historical mystery story. From uncovering hidden gems in archives to unraveling the mysteries of centuries-old manuscripts, we'll embark on a journey through time together.

Each entry will allow you to immerse yourself in the joys of historical discovery. Whether you're a history enthusiast, a fellow writer, or simply curious about the past, I hope you'll enjoy the ride!

So grab a cup of tea, settle in, and let's explore the past together!


If you're hungry for more tales of intrigue and adventure from the Middle Ages and the Early Modern period, don't miss out on my books Hook, Line, and Sinker and Wolfsbane: Best New England Crime Short Stories. Immerse yourself in the rich tapestry of historical fiction and experience the past like never before.
