My new novel, LEGACY, set in the turbulent years following the Gunpowder plot, is out there and doing well.  This is the first in a trilogy featuring new sleuth Justice Belstrang. Now at work on book 2.

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

Take care and stay safe.
