3…2…1: Past Tense is launched!

It's launch day! If you like, you can imagine that I'm writing this with virtual bunting strung above my head, and drinking a glass of virtual champagne (although it's a bit early for that sort of thing). Anyway, I'm very pleased to announce that Pippa Parker book 6, Past Tense, is now available in ebook and …

The best of both worlds: Past Tense launches on 30 June!

I seem to have been busier than usual lately. I'm not sure if this is because I have been, or if it just seems that way. But anyhow, I haven't quite got round to a proper marketing effort for Pippa Parker book 6, Past Tense, which launches next Tuesday, 30 June. Past Tense was an …

A new book – and a competition too!

I took a day off between book edits this week, and spent it sorting out the book cover and blurb for Pippa Parker book 6. I'm not sure this qualifies as a day off in the normal sense of the word, but hey. Anyway, here it is! Announcing Pippa Parker book 6, Past Tense, launching June …

It's Week 8 of #EscapeWithABook, and this week's a bit different because I have a FREEBIE for you! School's Out is a longish short story which I wrote as a bit of a warm-up for Pippa Parker book 6. It's a very gentle, cosy mystery which features a few of the characters you may have …

#EscapeWithABook Week 5: Murder in the Choir

It's Week 5 of #EscapeWithABook, in which I run a discount on a different ebook every week.

When one of your characters sneaks off and does an interview without you…

The first I heard about this was when Matt Ferraz, a fellow mystery author, contacted me: 'Did you know they've been talking?' 'Who's been talking?' As it turns out, my amateur sleuth Pippa Parker popped round to Matt's sleuth Grandma Bertha for a cup of tea (or maybe something stronger), and this interview was the …

Stand by your keyboards – The QWERTY Murders is live!

From nearly live to actually launched - The QWERTY Murders is GO! Not that I'm excited or anything. 😉 The QWERTY Murders is book 5 in the Pippa Parker Mysteries series and I'll be honest, I threw a lot into this one. I didn't quite get the kitchen sink in, but I'll save that for book 6. …
