I received my copies of the audio book, and couldn’t resist listening to the voice of Steven Crossley reading my novel.

CSI: Ile de la Cité, mysteries, thrillers, torture and 1800 forensics

Paris-Pont-Royal-1850

Discover the Paris of For the King

Alex at Historical Tapestry has a wonderful post on the Paris of For the King. She remarks, and how right she is, that the city is one of the main characters of the novel.

For the King: how I imagine my fictional characters

My mental images of the historical figures who appear in my novels are of course determined by their numerous portraits and the descriptions of eye witnesses. I don’t have to wonder what Napoléon Bonaparte looked like in 1800. But what about fictional characters, such as Roch Miquel or Blanche Coudert in FOR THE KING? Well, […]
