At the Guild Hall

I travel. Sometimes I travel by boat, plane, or automobile. Sometimes I travel by book. Sometimes I explore the real world. This week I continued to ramble around York. I followed Doro Bigglesworth and Chloe Tavistock to a lecture at the ancient Guild Hall. They are good friends in as complicated a relationship as the […]

Firm Dates~and other news

April sped by in a whirlwind of writing, group promotion, and upheaval. I’m happy to report that The Upright Son has been handed to the editor and is on schedule to release on June 30. Alas I don’t have a presale date yet. It will be tight, possibly the first week in June. I’m anxious […]

If its Tuesday it must be…

Back in the day there was a movie a few of you may be old enough to remember called If It Is Tuesday, This Must Be Belgium, about of group of strangers on a whirlwind tour of nine countries in eighteen days. It sums up how I’m feeling lately. Yes, I know it is Tuesday […]

Off to Knavesmire

I travel. Sometimes I travel by boat, plane, or automobile. Sometimes I travel by book. Sometimes I explore the real world. This week I continued to ramble around York. I let the Seahaven Diamonds, Ivy and Iris Bigglesworth, drag me off to the race track. York Races take place at Knavesmire, a common pasture belonging […]

An Unlikely Butler at Clifford’s Tower

I travel. Sometimes I travel by boat, plane, or automobile. Sometimes I travel by book. Sometimes I explore the real world. This week I rambled around York with three more of the Seahaven daughters. The Bigglesworths’ handsome and rather unusual butler accompanied Lady Bess (and my humble self, of course) when she escorted the younger […]

Rambling on to York

I travel. Sometimes I travel by boat, plane, or automobile. Sometimes I travel by book. Sometimes I explore the real world. This week I rambled on to York with the Seahaven daughters. Lady Barbara Bigglesworth insisted I accompany her to the York Royal Theatre, and I have to say I was impressed. Founded in 1744, […]

Rambling Through Harrogate

I travel. Sometimes I travel by boat, plane, or automobile. Sometimes I travel by book. Sometimes I explore the real world. This week I visited Harrogate, the famous Yorkshire spa town, and wandered The Stray with Lady Dorothea Bigglesworth. The abundance of chalybeate, sulphur, and various mineral springs in the area have been drawing visitors […]

Cruising

I am knee deep in editing The Upright Son. There are two pieces of good news. Number one, it is on schedule and will be turned in to the publisher by the end of the week. Number two, I think I have a winner here. You’re going to like it. This and that department: I’ve […]
