The Erdington Mysteries

The ultimate lockdown project, The Custard Corpses has proved to be surprisingly popular, and I’ve now written a sequel, The Automobile Assassination, to continue my journey through 1940s era Erdington (UK).

Information about The Custard Corpses

I’ve written a (short) article about The Picture Post magazine in the Historical Times November edition- it’s free to become a member. Do please check it out, and discover a whole world of fabulous articles for fans of historical fiction.


I took The Custard Corpses on tour with The Coffee Pot Book Club in April 2021. There are excerpts and interviews and guest posts about the book, and why I wrote it.

The Automobile Assassination

Thank you to everyone who’d taken a chance on The Erdington Mysteries. I’m a huge fan of classic period drama murder mysteries – my Friday night treat when I was a young teenager was to watch the Poirot series on ITV staring David Suchet I’ve just aged myself there). Hopefully, I’ve captured some of that special something that makes the era so interesting . I have been amazed by the response to my characters and the crimes I devised. Thank you, again.

I am currently working on a 1930s country house-style murder mystery set in North Northumberland. I’ll be sharing details soon, including a cover reveal, but the book is available to preorder now from Amazon.
