Delighted to announce that my new mystery THE TIVOLI MURDERS is out, set in the dazzling world of a  Victorian Music Hall illusionist. Ebook and paperback available now on Amazon. Enjoy! 

Meanwhile the Justice Belstrang Mysteries trilogy - LEGACY, THE WITCHING POOL and DELIVERANCE - are doing well, as is the Marbeck series. Worth checking out the omnibus editions (and cheaper!): FORTUNE AND FATE and BLADE OF ALBION respectively. 

I'm now at work on a new project.  

Meanwhile stay safe everyone, and all the best for the New Year.
