Although at the time, seeing my books published was a dream come true, I arrived at a rather bad time in the mainstream publishing world. Then my lovely agent sadly passed away, and just as I was about to throw in the towel and give up writing for ever… I had a call from Jasper Joffe.

- Analysis of the structure, contrasts, and complex of the lost love in The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe.
As we talked I knew that things were about to change, I just never realised quite how radical that change would be. Tough one. Some of them have left me speechless; several have reduced me to tears, in a good way! Quite a bit. I do have to be structured in taking the time to reply to everyone, or I could finish up with no time left for writing. However, I try to deal with incoming mail as quickly as possible, and I do answer every email.
If someone has been kind enough to contact me, the least I can do is thank them and have a bit of a chat! I have had some wonderful letters and now have a band of Fen Followers all around the world. I know some of them almost as well as my close friends. I know their dogs names, where they go on holiday and what they are growing in their gardens.
We swap photos and stories. The area abounds in folklore, and parts, although the fens are farmed, are very remote. There are still villages, miles from anywhere, with no bus service and no facilities at all. The skies however, make this part of the country very special.
And sunsets! Ah, the sunsets. I must have hundreds of photographs taken from the bottom of my garden and looking across the fields to where the sun goes down. Hundreds of shots of the same view, and everyone different. I love London. It was a tough, but magical time. Because of the nature of the books I write now, I doubt I would set a crime novel there. I certainly do have some stories to tell! I rarely get time to watch them!
But, yes, I love them, especially Endeavour. I think that is one of the best.
I love the combination of the hard-hitting storylines, the portrayal of the police force at the time, and the highly charged emotional lives of the characters. A lovely synergy. I think British crime drama is unsurpassable, and we have some amazing actors. Anyone want to give DI Nikki Galena a chance?? Jacquie is as astounded as I am! But she says to say that she is very proud of me.
Without her I would never have been able to write as confidently as I do; her help with police procedural and judicial law is invaluable. And she makes very good tea! What an eye-opener for a working-class kid from the Garden of England! I swore then, probably whilst I was scrubbing the floor or making the tea, that I would have a shop of my own one day.
It took until the early eighties, but I did it. Sadly the recession wiped us out, and I embarked on a series of weird and wonderful jobs; the last one being a bookshop manager.

Oh bliss! And now I live in a village in the Lincolnshire Fens with my partner, Jacqueline, and our two second generation Springer spaniels.
I had been writing mysteries for years but never had the time to take it seriously. Now I can, and as my partner is a highly decorated retired police officer; my choice of genre was suddenly clear. I have set my crime thrillers here in the misty fens because I sincerely love the remoteness and airy beauty of the marshlands.
This area is steeped in superstitions and lends itself so well to murder! The Beekeeper by Stewart Giles. A shocking discovery starts a trail of mayhem on the Cornish coast. Alice Green is a beekeeper in the small Cornish village of Polgarrow. One evening, Alice finds something strange under the hollyhock bush in her garden. Detective Harriet Taylor has just transferred to the area from Edinburgh. As she investigates a series of shocking crimes, she grows close to the old beekeeper and is determined to bring the murderer to justice. A crime mystery with a streak of black humour.
After writing eight books in a detective series featuring a male protagonist I wanted to go in another direction. The fictional town of Trotterdown in Cornwall also lends itself to an almost fairy-tale, mystery setting. Stewart Giles. I enjoy the serene life running a boat shop on the banks of the Vaal Dam.
