New Series - Ruby And Nessa - Ghost Hunters

I've started work on a new series about two sisters, Ruby and Nessa Laurel, who are ghost hunters. I've started the series with two short stories:

A Ghost In The Store
Ruby Laurel is a ghost hunter. She locates ghosts who are haunting places – or people.
In this first story, Ruby is called upon to investigate a haunting in a supermarket. She soon discovers the ghost of a young woman called Mary Jackson. How is Mary connected to the supermarket? And why is she haunting it?
Ruby’s investigation is made more difficult by the arrival of her troublesome younger sister, Nessa. Will Nessa help, or hinder, the investigation?

A Ghost In The Pub
Ruby and Nessa Laurel are ghost hunters. They locate ghosts who are haunting places – or people.
In this second story, Ruby and Nessa are asked to check out a nasty smell in a pub. They soon discover the ghost of an evil man who is determined to scare them away. According to local sources, the man is a local character called Shifty Sid Simmons who was always on the wrong side of the law.
Shifty Sid hasn’t been seen for decades. Why is he suddenly haunting The Red Lion pub?

Death At The Spa

My latest Julia Blake mystery has now been published. Look how relaxed Julia looks on the book cover - it doesn't last.

In this story, Julia goes on a spa break with her mum. They look forward to relaxing and being pampered. Julia is particularly excited to experience the new chocolate therapy sessions, and her therapist, Erin, assures her it will be a wonderful experience.
It is not a wonderful experience as Julia soon discovers a body in the chocolate floatation tank. She is happy to leave the investigation to the police, but her new friend has other ideas.

A Private Murder

The next book in the Storage Ghost Murders has now been released! It will be at 99c for the next few weeks. The book cover has a different design but the familiar characters are still here :

Grace Abrahams can see ghosts. She helps the ghosts of murdered people find justice.
In this story, Grace meets the ghost of Brendan O’Leary, a private detective. Brendan was working on a case before he was brutally murdered. Grace investigates and soon discovers that Brendan’s business partner is a suspect.

But someone is watching Grace as she gets deeper into the investigation. Who is this person? And why are they so interested in Brendan O’Leary?

I recently had a trip to London to look at Imperial College with my daughter. Here are some photos of the day :

The Victoria and Albert Museum :

Original Beatrix Potter Books!

These are letters written by Beatrix Potter to her publisher and friends

The Hay Wain by John Constable - I've only ever seen prints of this before 

Inside the cafe at The Victoria and Albert Museum - a little bit of music to go with my coffee and cake

Imperial College - I don't know what's inside this tower

Some fancy houses on the streets of South Kensington
