I’m a word-wrangler.
I tell stories of other worlds and other times. Myths and legends, history and fairytales, fantasy and science fiction. More recently I’ve been concentrating on other things.
I’ve written narrative history for Amazon’s Kindle Singles program, taking historical incidents and telling them with all the vivid intensity of a novel. They’re dramatic, and as historically accurate as the records allow. There are three of them so far – The Day Democracy Died, Death Keeps His Court, and Plato and the Tyrant.
My newest book, A Matter of Loyalty, is the last in a historical detective series set in the depths of the English countryside, among the mists and shadows of the Cold War. The first two books were written by my mother, author Elizabeth Edmondson; the third is my work from her notes.
