The Next Book…’The Web’…

I’m busily working away on my next book. This will be another historical fiction novel, this time set in the village of Long Lawford in Warwickshire. Mentioned in the Doomsday Book, the village has a rich history spanning the centuries and offers the perfect setting for a new historical fiction novel. This will be a tale of love, loss, land and loyalty spread over several time periods.

You can’t just sit down and write a historical fiction novel without research and my next book has five time periods spanning a thousand years, so there is quite a lot of reading for me to do! These are some of the books I am working my way through. They might give you a clue about the kind of characters and plot you will encounter in The Web…

I have characters, I have plot, I have five time periods and a setting…
