Very excited that the Thomas the Falconer series - all seven of them - are being re-published as ebooks and in paperback by Sharpe Books. The Ruffler's Child, A Ruinous Wind and The Ramage Hawk are out already, with the others to follow soon along with an omnibus edition. Watch this space!

Good news too from Joffe Books that both my Betsy Brand mysteries are to be relaunched in paperback early next year.

And my novel about Yorick, whose skull features in Hamlet - Yorick, his Tale told by Himself - is now in good shape and being submitted. 


Meanwhile, still working on my next historical novel.
