What’s New?

This month The Youngest Dowager comes out. This is a heavily revised version of the novel of the same title published years ago when I was writing as Francesca Shaw. One more Francesca Shaw title to go and then all eight are reissued.

With the help of a stay at the Landmark Trust’s gorgeous Prospect Tower in Kent I’ve finished the second draft of A Kiss Across Time, book two of my timeslip mystery romance series Time Into Time. Now there’s the final revisions to wrestle with – and the realisation that there’s a key scene missing in the middle!

The Prospect Tower is a delicious Georgian garden folly that became an Edwardian cricket pavilion. It was easy to imagine either relaxed Regency tea parties taking place in the sitting room or dashing gentlemen in cricket whites striding out to bat on the pitch in front of the tower!


Date for Your Diary

I’m always thrilled to be invited to speak at Hertfordshire Libraries’ excellent LitFest. This year I’ll be speaking about Stagecoach Travel at Ware Library in the morning of May 17th and about Jane Austen’s London at Hoddesdon Library in the afternoon. I hope to see some of my readers there!
