We all did things during Lockdown that we never thought we'd do. Me? I was inspired to write a 1940s murder mystery set in Erdington, the UK. And when people really liked it, I wrote a sequel as well.
I am a huge fan of the classic 1930s and 1940s mysteries - and Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple. Inspired by a series of adverts I discovered in some old editions of the Picture Post magazine, The Custard Corpses took shape.
For those of you who read my Saxon stories, yes, Erdington would have been part of Mercia in the Saxon era, so I didn't really stray from familiar territory.
The Erdington Mysteries are available in ebook, paperback, hardback and audio.
