THE WITCHING POOL, Book 2 in the Justice Belstrang mysteries, is in the Amazon top 100 for Historical Mysteries. So is Book 1, LEGACY, set in the turbulent years following the Gunpowder Plot. And now Book 3, DELIVERANCE, is out! So the trilogy is complete. The omnibus edition - 'box set' if you like - is also published as FORTUNE AND FATE. 

The Thomas the Falconer series is also flourishing. THE RUFFLER'S CHILD has been in the Amazon top 10 of 'Best-selling Historical Fiction'.  

Having a breather now after a year of intensive work. Take care and stay safe.
