A NEW STANDALONE - DROWNED LIVES


My Derbyshire police detectives Ben Cooper and Diane Fry are on holiday at the moment (I think they deserved it after 18 novels and all those murders!). 

So my next book, due out in the UK in August, will be something different - a standalone novel with a historical theme, called DROWNED LIVES.

This is set in Derbyshire's neighbouring county, Staffordshire, and in particular around the fascinati Read more of this blog post »

Kris Neri Thanks for friending this mystery & paranormal author, Stephen. It's always great to connect with another author, especially one on the other side of the world.

Stephen Booth Hi, Zoë. Been ridiculously busy. I had a new book out and moved house at the same time. Not to be recommended - especially when BT leave you without phone or internet connection for weeks as a result! Hoping to get some writing done in August, if I'm lucky! How about you?

Zoë Sharp Hi Stephen

Christine Hatfield good morning

Jan Hi, Steve. Doing pretty well, thanks. Debating whether to attend this year's B'con dinner - not as much fun these days without my traditional con dinner partner!
