Hey, my bloody good read...

...is finally here!

It's been a really long journey...but I'm pleased and humbled to finally be a published novelist, with today's release of A Murder at Rosamund's Gate (St.Martin's Press/Minotaur Books). 

And to see all those troubling questions which plagued me for so long, finally resolved. Such questions included:

  • How did London communities monitor themselves, before the rise of a "real" police force? 
  • What kind of evidence could someone use to identify a murderer, before the birth of modern forensics?
  • How could an uneducated servant find justice for a murdered friend?  
  • And of course, the hardest question of all: Whodunnit! The first draft I wrote, years ago, lacked the murderer. So suffice it to say, over multiple drafts, I hoped it would all be resolved! 
 I'm just thrilled that it worked out, and I'm so happy to see my book in print!


  1. Plaudits for being persistent, Susanna.
