Another review for Best Corpse

November 24th, 2014 (07:38 pm)

The Blogger girls found it to be a story that had me intrigued and eager to see how things would get resolved. They found it a tad too British - they should have seen the mss before edits!

Christmas markets

November 23rd, 2014 (08:29 pm)

The rain at last relented and we pottered off to Winchester, to take a look at the Cathedral Close Christmas market. Absolutely brilliant - really good stalls and wonderful atmosphere. Sorry if the pics don't do the market or the city justice.

Ever have a CBA day?

November 21st, 2014 (01:08 pm)

Feeling a bit like that. Got a pile of things to do but think I'll sneak off and watch a bit of Time Team. I blame the weather; or maybe keeping my powder dry for launch of Best Corpse on Monday. (Which reminds me of all the governor stuff in my 'to do' pile. Ho hum.)

Shall console self with thoughts of Horns and Haloes and the sort of governors who never turn up when I;m leading a Selection course!

And don't forget to enter the Christmas thriller giveaway. Got to be in it to win it and all that.

Holmes and Watson through the ages

November 19th, 2014 (12:31 pm)

Some wonderful classic interpretations of the lads through the ages. Lots of little connections, like Cedric Hardwicke as Holmes - TV Watson's father!

Guest author - Chris Quinton

Lovely to have my old mucker Chris here again. She's always worth reading. I'll leave it to her...

When Charlie invited me to blog about Undercover Blues [for which many thanks, btw, and I’ll buy you a glass of Something when we meet next], she asked me a couple of questions – why 1935, and why a dance band?

Why 1935? It is, after all, far outside of my preferred historical periods. Well, a year or so ago I embarked on a reading jag of old favourites, rediscovering Dorothy L Sayers, Margery Allingham, Agatha Christie, Carter Dickson, Michael Innes, to name only a handful. And, yes, I should have been writing, but I am easily distracted… But the 1930s sort of stuck in my brain. In that strange time in between terrible wars, British society and events in Europe were undergoing seismic shifts, and I wanted to explore it, if not in great depth. I remembered a story I’d written many years ago, so I dug it out. Although it hadn’t initially been set in the ‘30s, it had distinct possibilities. It needed a hell of a lot of work, of course, and research. Read more...Collapse )
