It feels like a long time since I last spoke to you. I am moving around the world a little – a haircut here, an outdoor brunch there. I even bumped into a friend in a store the other day. She didn't recognize me with my mask on, but I soon put her right. 😉
Otherwise, things progress as normal. I am writing and enjoying having my sons home before they return to their college lives in a couple of months.
Today, I have news about other authors.
Death lies on her like an untimely frost…
My friend, Kate P. Adams has a new book out. In addition to the many other strings of her bow, Kate was, at one time, a secondary school English teacher who loved Shakespeare. In A Tragic Act she has combined this love with her other big passion, history.
Death, love, Shakespeare, all come together in the grounds of Charleton House when director Miranda is found dead. Curious as ever, our heroine, Sophie soon finds herself looking into the past of the volatile director, uncovering love triangles and professional jealousies, many foes, and few friends. But could Miranda really have been as bad as some people say?
Find out in A Tragic Act!
There are many….

And Then There Were None…
I'm re-reading this classic. I first read it when I was about 12. I scarfed as many of Agatha Christie's books as I could after I came upon one that took my fancy at a school rummage sale. I didn't know anything about her at the time.
After that, I would dive into the library to get more and more Agatha Christie books, and every time my family went on holiday, usually to a self catering cottage in the UK somewhere, I would go straight to the bookshelf where books had been left by previous holidaymakers to see if any of them were an Agatha Christie I hadn't yet read. Oh joy, if I found one.
I've watched several Agatha Christie documentaries and one of the most intriguing things I learned was that her Hercule Poirot books vastly outsold her Miss Marple series. I much prefer Miss Marple so I was surprised by that, but it does mirror my experience. Inspector Graham is so very popular…
