I was actually kind of tempted to just leave an “Under Construction” sign up here, for obvious reasons. As in, my books are still very much under construction.
However, they do exist, and not in an entirely theoretical way, so let’s talk what sort of stories you can expect to see in the upcoming months!
Baking Bad – A Beaufort Scales Mystery Book 1
Dragons, tea, and murder – Beaufort Scales’ first full-length cozy mystery.
When the vicar of Toot Hansell is murdered by a poisoned cupcake, suspicion immediately falls on the ladies of the Women’s Institute, and more specifically Alice and Miriam. Beaufort Scales, High Lord of the Cloverly Dragons and passionate tea-drinker, is having none of that. Can he and Mortimer clear their friends’ names and avoid discovery by the frankly alarming detective inspector? Will Alice’s past catch up with her? Will they catch the killer before the killer catches them?
And how exactly are they going to explain that dead rabbit outside the inspector’s door?
Twisted Baubles – A Beaufort Scales Mystery Book 2
A festive tale of kidnappings, explosions, and stolen turkeys.
One should never meddle in the affairs of dragons, but someone has been doing just that. They’ve been making imitation dragon scale baubles that are nothing short of lethal, and kidnapping delivery drivers all over the Yorkshire Dales. They’ve also been leaving behind some distinctly dragon-ish traces.
Beaufort Scales, High Lord of the Cloverly Dragons, is hot on the trail – or would be, if he wasn’t having certain political problems at home. That leaves Alice and Miriam to track down the real culprits, rescue the hostages, and salvage Mortimer’s bauble reputation, all while misleading the police regarding the of existence of dragons, and hopefully without being blown up by unexpectedly aggressive Christmas decorations in the process. Luckily they have the full resources of the Toot Hansell Women’s Institute at their disposal. They’ll need it.
And then there’s the small question of who stole all the Christmas turkeys…
I don’t exactly know yet. I can’t plan that far ahead. However, I have at least two other Beaufort tales in the offing, as well as some non-related books that are just begging to be written. I’ll keep you updated!
