Her mystery novels include the Edwardian era Cambridge Fellows series, series, and the contemporary Best Corpse for the Job. Multi-published, she has titles with Carina, Samhain, Riptide and Bold Strokes, among others.

A member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association, Mystery People and International Thriller Writers Inc, Charlie regularly appears at literary festivals and at reader and author conferences with The Deadly Dames.

Thank you! Yes, I'm sure there will be. They just have to tell me what they've been up to so I can jot it down (if that makes any sense).

Lovely write up of the Lindenshaw books at Padme’s Library.


And a cool zebra from the Zany Zebra trail in Southampton. This one was decorated by a local school for children with special needs. I love his leg braces and boots!

There's an art to writing short stories and you've either got it or you haven't. Peter has, and this anthology proves it. I usually spot plot twists in advance but these stories fooled me time and again.
