Even though I put my MacBook down for a while to go on an extensive camel ride on Christmas Day, I picked it up again as soon as I’d got off to continue with putting the finishing touches to an extensive rewrite of the first Amelia Wilde novel (which I thought I’d finished in July, but such is the nature of the creative process).
Anyway, it’s really finished now – retitled RING OF DECEIT and the four following stories are underway, provisional titles being
2) ILLUSION OF MURDER (which might still be called SLAUGHTER IN THE COTSWOLDS)
3) PREMEDITATION IN PARIS
4) MASSACRE IN MARRAKECH
5) MURDER IN MONTE CARLO
Any guesses which one I was researching on the camel in the Moroccan desert?!
Back to RING OF DECEIT, I thought this photo really gives a flavour of Amelia Wilde’s talents. Of course, it isn’t Amelia as she’s a figment of my imagination – it’s actually my good friend Amanda Sandow.
Personally, I’ll stick to riding camels…
