Not Writing but Digging

Do one thing and do it well, they say. Well, my profile says ‘author and archaeologist’ so I’m hedging my bets. The manuscript of my new thriller Blackshirt Masquerade is with Level Best’s editors in the USA, and although I have a rough first draft of the sequel, I’m not intending doing more work on...

Writers Unlocked

It felt like a return to normality, a real live crime writing conference with actual live authors. Zoom conferences never did it for me – I’d quickly drift off, or busy myself doing something else whilst my camera was off. This July saw the welcome return of the Theakeston’s Crime Writing Festival at the Old... Continue Reading →

Book Deal for 1930s Thriller

I’m happy to announce that I’ve signed a three-book deal with US publisher Level Best Books for my new thriller series. In 1935, a disgraced British army officer is recruited by MI5 to penetrate the British Union of Fascists. A twist of fate turns him into an unwitting hero of the movement, trapping him in...

Murder on the Move

A great many crime writers choose a single location for their crimewave, and their books become associated with that place. So, Miss Marple solves mysteries in the fictional St Mary Mead, Morse in Oxford and Rebus around Edinburgh. Often crime readers say how they enjoy a crime series set in a single town, and they...

I'm excited to take second billing after Martina Cole in this month's Crime Reader's Association Newsletter, in which I've written a short piece about revising the Flint series for the Lume ebooks. The Newsletters are archived on the website after three months or so, but to read the current one you will need to sign... Continue Reading →
