Checking In

Much has happened since May and the release of The Alexandria Affair. First I was very pleased to see that The Alexandria Affair made the USA Today bestseller list! Absolutely thrilled. This book has been the bestselling Captain Lacey book to date.

I am still working on the next Kat Holloway mystery, and will have an announcement about that soon. These things take time …

Meanwhile, I’m happy that I am doing more mystery-related activities. I spoke at Left Coast Crime in February, and in August, I’ll be giving a workshop and participating on a panel at WriteNow!, sponsored by Sisters in Crime. I’m looking into attending more mystery cons and speaking about writing mysteries.

As I discussed before, the next Captain Lacey mystery will be called A Mystery at Carleton House. I don’t yet have a publication date for it. At the moment, I am writing a Shifters novel for my publisher as Jennifer Ashley, next I will complete the Kat Holloway full-length book, followed by yet another Shifters book I owe my publisher. Then I will get back to Captain Lacey. It takes me 2-3 months to write a book, depending on its length, so you can figure about how long it will be.

I’ll post again when I know release dates and have pre-order information for both Captain Lacey and Kat Holloway.

So far, I’m enjoying my stint as a mystery writer. I have ideas for at least three, maybe four, more series, so who knows what the future will bring!

By the way, I did take the two weeks R&R I mentioned I’d be doing in June. I had a fabulous time in Amsterdam, Germany, France, and Switzerland. I can’t lie–it was awesome. I am refreshed and ready to write!

The Alexandria Affair is Out!

I’m pleased to announce the release of The Alexandria Affair (Captain Lacey Regency Mysteries, Book 11). Journey with me and Lacey’s friends to Egypt of 1818, where Lacey must find an elusive object for James Denis.

Next–Captain Lacey returns to England on the eve of fatherhood and helps Grenville look into a series of crimes at Carleton House in London. (A Carleton House Mystery)

Another Captain Lacey book in the works

As I finish up The Alexandria Affair, I’m looking ahead to more installments of the Captain Lacey series.

I’ve decided that the title of the next book will be A Mystery at Carleton House, which will bring Lacey back to London with his new family. The Prince Regent asks Grenville for help to solve a series of odd thefts at Carleton House, the Regent’s residence in London.

I don’t have a pub date yet—I am going through my schedule for the rest of the year, and it’s already pretty tight! I will write the book and release it as soon as possible.

First, The Alexandria Affair. Lacey and Grenville are getting up to a great many things in Egypt. The book will be out May 17 from all vendors. You can preorder now from:
