It's the quiet season for me as regards giving talks with only one slotted in for 9 July at Woolston Library. I'm looking forward to meeting readers and telling them about the inspiration behind my crime novels.
Although it might be summer and less activity on the talks front there's no rest for the wicked, (not that I am that wicked, you'll have to take my word for that) or rather I should say no rest for an author. Over the next few weeks or so I'll be walking the coastal paths on the south coast of England (as always looking for a good place to put a body) and although it may be summer, in my mind I'll be in the depths of winter with Inspector Alun Ryga, my new 1950 Scotland Yard detective as he embarks on his second mystery in the East Sussex harbour town of Newhaven.
My regular readers will know that Newhaven is featured in another of my mystery thriller novels, Lost Voyage, with undercover investigator, Art Marvik. Marvik's missions are very much in the present but for Ryga it is December 1950 in Newhaven where a police constable has been found dead and his wife is missing.
Enough of that for now because readers have yet to meet my new thoughtful, quiet Scotland Yard detective in the first in the mystery series DEATH IN THE COVE due out in paperback, e book, Kindle and Kobo and audio book on 25 September.
