Excited to announce that my new novel, LEGACY, set in the turbulent years following the Gunpowder plot, is now published by Sharpe Books. 

All seven books in my Thomas the Falconer series are doing well. And Thomas has now made a welcome return in my short story A False Hawksman, just published in the HWA collection ROYAL BLOOD (Sharpe), nine stories set in Tudor times by leading authors. Check out on Amazon. 

Good news too that both my Betsy Brand Restoration mysteries, After the Fire and The Judas Blade (Joffe Books), are climbing the Amazon ratings for 'women sleuths'.  

Take care and stay safe.
