Welcome to

I hope you will take a few minutes to look around the site and learn a little more about my crime fiction.  My thirteen mysteries fall into two series (although some minor characters do cross over).  ‘Peggy Pinch Investigates’ are village murders set in 1926.  The ‘Timberdick Mysteries’ are set in city backstreets and follow the characters from the 1930s through to the 1960s.  2015 has seen the first of The Ned Machray Memoirs.  My shorter fiction is published at our family’s bookshop as The Goodladies Thriller Library.

If you have already read one of my books, please spare a few seconds for a five question survey
