Currently I'm busy researching and planning my new novel. A lot of reading! 

Had a good trip to London last month, among other things seeing the Samuel Pepys exhibition at the Royal Maritime Museum, and meeting fellow writers at the Society of Authors. 

Thanks to all those who have visited my site lately, especially in the U.S. - more than all other countries combined!
