Hi Meena,

How did I not see this question?! I'm SO sorry, I wasn't being rude just (apparently) unseeing!

First of all, thank you so much, I'm thrilled you like Hugo and I hope you continue to enjoy the series. Second, yes! I'm working on the ninth book in the series right now, which will be out sometime next year. As I tell people, I'll keep writing them as long as folks keep reading them!

Thanks so much for dropping me this note, and apologies again for not seeing it sooner.

The secrets of THE PARIS LIBRARIAN

This post was first published on the fantastic Jungle Red Writers blog, yesterday August 24, 2016.

I wanted to post it here, too, since I think it's a good look behind the creation of THE PARIS LIBRARIAN, my latest novel in the Hugo Marston series.

Enjoy!

There are two stories that lie between the pages of THE PARIS LIBRARIAN. One makes me cry, the other makes me laugh.Shall we start with the tears? Read more of this blog post »

“If peace had a smell,it would be the smell of a library full of old, leather-bound books.”
Mark Pryor, The Bookseller

“If peace had a smell, he thought, it would be the smell of a library full of old, leather-bound books.”
Mark Pryor, Bookseller, The: The First Hugo Marston Novel

“A thought nudged at Hugo, like the first large wave of an incoming tide, and it almost shocked him with its cold touch, with the sense that there was another surge coming. Not of salty water, of course, but a second revelation that was inevitable and devastating, another blow to this noble if horribly flawed family.”
Mark Pryor, The French Widow
