Hello! I'm back.


I'm so delighted to be able to get into this area of Blogger since I seemed to be locked out from creating new posts for weeks. Right now, however, I have the access to post a new blog with timely information on my next venture, beginning tomorrow, Friday 19th July.

For a change I'm not going to write about my latest published novel - Novice Threads - instead I'm going to be writing about my Roman/Celtic themed novels.  

For a number of years I've had plans to visit the Great North Museum in Jesmond (Newcastle Upon Tyne, England) to see their Ancient Roman collections - lots of which are from fort sites along Hadrian's Wall - but for various reasons, the visits were cancelled.

Since I'll be driving south, some 330 miles, to be an author participant at the Malton Museum Roman Festival (Yorkshire) this coming weekend, I'm extending my trip by one night to include a visit to the Great North Museum. 

My total return drive will be more than 650 miles but I'm really looking forward to it. 

As well as selling my books alongside other authors who write in the Roman era in the Author tent, I'll also be giving a 20 minute talk in the Talk tent. I'm not sure how I can tell any audience about my Roman themed novels in just 20 mins, but I'll do my best! 

I'll be talking about my Celtic Fervour adventure series 

and The Taexali Game, my Time-Travel Historical Adventure set in Caledonia for teens. 

Hopefully updates will follow, so long as I can get access to this 'create' page. 

Happy reading!

Under a Lightning Sky by Pam Lecky

 Good Morning!

My author friend Pam Lecky has a new release to share here today! If you love murder mysteries and WW2 novels then you'll really enjoy reading Pam's newest novel which will hit the shelves on July 4th!

Here are some details and the all-important link to buy this exciting novel. 



A WW2 Murder Mystery

London is under attack. But within the rubble, a greater danger lurks…

The Luftwaffe has been bombing London continuously since September 1940.

During a bombing raid, Madeline Fairfax is caught in her kitchen whilst cooking for her husband and children. She becomes trapped in the rear of her home, but regains consciousness just in time to see a familiar face, offering hope of rescue. But instead, Madeline is tragically strangled to death.

As a dangerous murderer uses the Blitz to cover their crime, local detective Jamie Barton enlists the help of Madeline’s sister and volunteer firefighter, Penny Fairfax to help. Now, caught in a web of uncertainty and mistrust, a grieving Penny must find the truth and do whatever it takes to protect those she loves most.

Together, will they unravel this case before it's too late…?
