I am just finishing the final proofs of my next historical novel set in the War of the Roses. It will be published in early September.
Harrogate Library have invited me to give a talk on Eugene Aram. Aram was a schoolteacher and linguistic scholar acclaimed for his insistence that Celtic was an important foundation of the English language. He was tried and hanged in York in 1759 for the murder of Daniel Clark, a young Knaresborough shoemaker.
Knaresborough Historical Society have kindly invited me to speak to them on the same subject in May of next year.
