New Writing

Piccadilly, London 1896

I’m pleased to announce that the writing of a new novel is under way. I’m keeping its title under wraps until closer to the publication date which should be early in 2021.

Following the success of my debut novel ‘The Asylum Soul’ I have returned to my historical ‘roots’. This time the book is set mostly in 1896 and follows the fortunes, or rather misfortunes of a hapless young Woking girl who goes in to domestic service in Piccadilly, London.

This is another concept I have been sitting on for a number of years, indeed since around 1997. Although the story is pure fiction, I have found the obvious need to carry out extensive research to ensure the authenticity of locations, character styles and politics as well as the rule of law at the time.

Research I find is always an important and enjoyable part of the publishing process. Once again, I look forward to unleashing the final product.
