Victorian Inventions by Anna Castle

Posted by on Jun 13, 2016 in 19th England, Featured Book | 2 comments

The Victorians may be responsible for many of the world’s ills, like post-colonialist political disorder, industrial pollution, and rampant consumerism, but they by gosh knew how to have fun. They were fearless optimists, certain that they could do anything, given enough hard work and imagination. So many of the things we use every day were invented in the late nineteenth century: bicycles, automobiles, airplanes, and more. They’re ubiquitous and we can hardly imagine our lives without them. But what about the also-rans — the...

The Final Case of Dead Detective Seamus Hanrahan by Peg Herring

Posted by on May 30, 2016 in 20th Century US, Featured Book, Historical Research, Historical Tidbits | Comments Off on The Final Case of Dead Detective Seamus Hanrahan by Peg Herring

Dead, but still working. That’s the idea behind the Dead Detective Mysteries. Book #1, THE DEAD DETECTIVE AGENCY, was named Best Mystery of 2012 by the Electronic Publishing Internet Coalition. Readers met Seamus, a detective who died in the 1950s and has been hanging around the gateway to the Afterlife ever since, helping murder victims learn who killed them and why. Two subsequent books, DEAD FOR THE MONEY and DEAD FOR THE SHOW, concern recently-deceased clients Seamus takes on. Once he answers their questions, they can proceed to the final...

Researching The Jossing Affair by J. L. Oakley

Posted by on May 16, 2016 in Featured Book, Historical Research, Historical Tidbits, World War Two | 1 comment

            “He found the young man lying in the snow, his battered body pushed deep under the brambles at the bottom of a ravine. If it had not been for the sound of the car door slamming, Hans Gunnerson would never have found him.” This is how my new WW II novel, The Jøssing Affair, opens, just as I dreamed it nearly twenty-five years ago.
