Just realized I've not actually mentioned a lovely visit I had to Waterstone's Bishop's Stortford...It was on the same night that Nick Griffin was on Question time and I'm happy to report that I had an easier time than he did. A really good discussion with local book groups, very interesting questions and we echoed Question Time to a certain extent with a foray into the issue of immigration (with reference to the Jewish strand of banking and moneylending in Madonna of the Almonds) Thanks very much to Valda and her colleagues who sent me away with a bottle of wine and a copy of Ghostwalk, both of which which I'm currently devouring.
Here's the US cover for my upcoming third novel The Botticelli Secret, published first in March in the US and in May in the UK. I'm very excited about this one because it's a bit different from my previous novels, much more adventure/ treasure hunt based, a lot bawdier (!) and with a heroine I love so much I actually miss her! I've also illustrated the book myself (inside I mean - can't take credit for the cover art!)
