I am indeed - I'm working on Book 4 at the moment! It'll be set back at Deepdean school, a year after Murder Most Unladylike, and funnily enough it was slightly inspired by the Holmes story 'The Adventure of Charles Augustus Milverton'. I don't think I'd ever use another book as a straight plot model, but I'm certainly inspired by mystery writers like Conan Doyle and Christie, and use a lot of references and ideas in my books.

I hope that answers your questions!(less)

Hello! I think that although I do have a fairly definite idea about most of my characters, you as a reader are very welcome to form your own conclusions based on what's in the books! Daisy is certainly canonically only attracted to girls, while you'r See Full Answer
