Behind the Scenes of A PRETTY DECEIT - Savoy Hotel - October 4, 2020

One memorable event takes place at the famed Savoy Hotel in London within the pages of A PRETTY DECEIT, and I had great fun looking up images of the hotel from this time period.                                                                        ... Click Here To Read More >>



Behind the Scenes of A PRETTY DECEIT - Roman Ruins - October 1, 2020

In addition to the ruins of the Roman villa at Littlecote House, I also utilized a number of other Roman sites in Britain. The first was the remains of another Roman villa at Brading on the Isle of Wight. The site has been modernized and updated since 1919, but the pictures below still give you an idea of the place I described. The second I'd like to highlight are the remains of Burgh Castle in windswept Norfolk. Sharp-eyed readers might recognize that the remains of Burgh Castle were also menti...

Behind the Scenes of A PRETTY DECEIT - Aerodromes & Aeroplanes - September 29, 2020

Although RAF Froxfield, the aerodrome I placed near Littlemote House in A PRETTY DECEIT, is entirely fictional. it is based on a number of real aerodromes and airfields postioned around Wiltshire. Namely RAF Yatesbury and RAF Stonehenge. In these pictures you can see what those airfields looked like, the uniforms the men wore, and some of the aeroplanes they flew.                                ... Click Here To Read More >>



Behind the Scenes of A PRETTY DECEIT - Littlemote House - September 28, 2020

As I'm sure many of you have already figured out, the inspiration for Littlemote House, the home of Verity's aunt and cousin, was largely Littlecote House. I often alter the names of the properties I use in my stories, even by a single letter, if an event which occurs there is tragic or disturbing, and entirely fictional, as was the case in A PRETTY DECEIT. However, I utilized many of the actual rooms and even elements of its history and folklore in the book, including the remains of a Roman vil... Click Here To Read More >>

Behind the Scenes of A STROKE OF MALICE - Twelfth Night - April 3, 2020

Today, in the 21st century US, the holiday of Twelfth Night has largely been forgotten, but one hundred and fifty years ago, we all would have had a rollicking good time. Twelfth Night refers to the evening of the twelfth day of Christmas, and is observed as the holy day of Epiphany, commemorating the visit of the Magi to the Christ child. It occurs on either January 5th or 6th, depending on your region and religious denomination, and marks the end of the holiday season. Various traditions spr... Click Here To Read More >>



Why should I preorder? - January 28, 2020

A fellow author posted this excellent thread over on Twitter about the importance of book preorders to authors, and it reminded me that not everyone may understand why this is. Many authors, including myself, hesitate to sound too demanding or desperate, but there is a distinct difference between plugging and simply educating. Essentially, preorders demonstrate to publishers, as well as booksellers and online retailers that there is interest and demand for the book. This can lead to a number of...

Penny For Your Secrets - Behind-the-Scenes - Night-Clubs - October 31, 2019

London was abuzz with night-clubs in the late teens and twenties. Some of these catered only to the wealthy and elite, like the glamorous Embassy Club—with its violet and jade-green décor, walls ranged with looking glasses, and high-subscription fees. While others flouted the strict liquor licensing laws, serving libations late into the night to the music of its American jazz bands. These clubs also often featured exhibitions of ballroom and new novelty dances, some performed by duo... Click Here To Read More >>
