I’m very proud to say that my first novel, A House Of Mirrors, is available to buy on Amazon, and free to read on Kindle Unlimited!
The origin of the story:
I was reading a Sherlock Holmes story and it struck me – over the head – how little we know of Mrs Hudson. She runs 221B Baker Street, but we barely see her. I began to wonder about her viewpoint, and how she would tell a Holmes story. Then I wondered where Mr Hudson was. And the story unfolded…
Wife or widow – which reflection is true?
‘What is your profession, Mr Holmes?’
When Nell Villiers’ policeman husband vanishes on a routine case, her life is wrecked. Placed under protection by Inspector Lestrade, Nell is ripped from her old life and her own secret police work. Instead she must live as a widow, Mrs Hudson, in a safe house: 221B Baker Street.
Two years on, with the case still unsolved, Nell vows to defy Lestrade and use her skills to discover the truth. She takes a lodger to cover her tracks; a young man called Sherlock Holmes. How could she know what would happen?
‘It’s always been fun before – but now the police are the enemy…’
