What a great question. Thanks for asking it, and I'm glad you're enjoying the series. I did find my maternal grandfather. At least I found his resting place, which is the Riverside cemetery in LA. It was with much help from another reader of the series, an American amateur genealogist, who got in touch about my books initially and then and asked if she could help to trace him, which she certainly did, and I'm very grateful to her. This book wasn't so much my for my GI grandfather specifically, but for both of my maternal grandparents, particularly my nan, and all the nans, to which I feel the WW2 era truly belongs.(less)

The Penmaker's Wife is Out Now!

Historical noir anyone? Welcome to my dark side.

I've very pleased to announce that my new historical thriller, The Penmaker's Wife is out now in all formats worldwide!
Okay, it's not too dark. If you can handle Peaky Blinders I think you'll be fine with The Penmaker's Wife, which is also set in Birmingham, although a little earlier, in the late 1800s.

I was in what I imagine was a small minorit... Read more of this blog post »

The Penmaker's Wife is a well-crafted page turner that is interesting and full of surprises. This is my first Steve Robinson book but it won't be my last. Looking forward to starting another!"

“I have a fear of dying partway through a book—of never knowing the ending. It’s silly, I know, but it makes me a quick reader.”
Steve Robinson, To the Grave

“Well, take e-mail for example. People don’t write to each other anymore, do they? Once my generation’s gone, the written letter will be consigned to social history. Tell me, Jefferson. When did you last write a letter?’ Tayte had to think about it. When the occasion came to him, he smiled, wide and cheesy. ‘It was to you,’ he said. ‘I wrote you on your sixtieth birthday.’ ‘That was five years ago.’ ‘I still wrote you.’ Marcus looked sympathetic. ‘It was an e-mail.’ ‘Was it?’ Marcus nodded. ‘You see my point? Letters are key to genealogical research, and they’re becoming obsolete. Photographs are going the same way.’ He looked genuinely saddened by the thought. ‘How many connections have you made going through boxes of old letters and faded sepia photographs? How many assignments would have fallen flat without them?’ ‘Too many,’ Tayte agreed. ‘I can’t see genealogists of the future fervently poring over their clients’ old e-mails, can you? Where’s the fun in that? Where’s the excitement and the scent of time that so often accompanies the discovery?’ He had Tayte there, too. Tayte’s methods were straight out of the ‘Marcus Brown School of Family History.’ Tripping back into the past through an old letter and a few photographs represented everything he loved about his work. It wouldn’t be the same without the sensory triggers he currently took for granted.”
Steve Robinson, The Last Queen of England
