What lies beneath Halloween Sherlock…another guest post!

I've been playing away again, I'm afraid... This time I'm at paranormal author Catherine Green's blog, talking about what inspired my Halloween Sherlock series - which, as usual, was never intended to be a series at all. There's also news about a Halloween takeover I'm participating in as part of the launch for C.L. Monaghan's new book, Midnight …

Here's the graph: I was aiming for between 25 and 30K, so I'll take that. Once I got started, the writing was fairly easy, …

It's been a shockingly long time since I wrote a proper blog post. Apologies, but I'm not quite sure where March and most of April went! I think the last time I mentioned my NaNoWriMo draft from November 2016, Murder At The Playgroup, was when I'd done a read-through preliminary to beginning THE EDIT (I finally …
