The first, ‘Screen Siren Noir’, currently comprises of three novels: ‘Diana Christmas’, ‘Eden St. Michel’ and ‘Alice Rackham’. All of which tell the stories of beautiful British film stars caught up in Noir tales of blackmail, obsession, scandal and death.

Hello. My name is F.R. Jameson.

[image error]



And I write horror and noir thrillers. I also used to keep this blog fairly up to date, but at the moment – with life, a small child and a busy writing schedule – I’m finding it harder and harder to keep on top of it. So for now, with a certain amount of regret, I am putting it on hiatus.

Jo I don't know enough Y. Ripper history to know why he was named as Peter Williams in the book and not Sutcliffe. I shall have to ask an older colleague who was a uni student at the time of the murders so remembers it all very well.

Beth Hi F.R.,
Thanks for befriending this fellow mystery/suspense author!

Elizabeth Hi, glad to be your friend on Good Reads!

In the UK? How exciting to meet a fellow author across the pond. I am in California with ancestry links to Redwood Castle in Ireland through my da's Irish Clan.

I've not read much horror, (and I am a cozy mystery author, greatly influenced by the British cozy authors) of horror genre, I have read classics from Peter Straub, E.A. Poe and a few others.

I was a Finalist Judge for the Eppies this year and surprisingly one of the novels I was given to judge was horror. It was so very well-writtten I gave it the highest possible score!
