New Year – New Book

The end of 2015 has seen me lay down my pen on my current work – Rebekah. The novel is now complete and you can  read a sample here.

The next stage is the rather lengthy process of editing, finding a publisher, and bringing the book to you as soon as I can.

Next week I will begin writing the first of a series of novels set during the Second World War. The main character is a war correspondent who will bring a totally new perspective on the conflict for most readers. I look forward to sharing the progress of this project with you.

In the meantime, I wish you a very Happy New Year. May 2016 bring you all that you hope for. May it be a year of peace, love, happiness and achievement.

Ten interesting facts about the English Civil War

The English Civil War is a fascinating period of history, but few people know much about it. I recently came across Anglotopia’s post Ten Interesting Facts About the English Civil War. which is well worth a look.

I wonder if you have any facts you would like to add to the list? Please do so in the comment box below as I would love to read them.  Perhaps they would be similar to the facts I have come across in the research for my new novel, Rebekah. One thing I have found interesting is the high incidence of witchraft trials during the war. This is something which will impact on my main characters – but more of that in a later post!
