Regarding my third book  SUMERFORD'S AUTUMN: Why is it that even the greatest benefits invariably bring disadvantages in their wake?

Indeed, no one may have noticed, but my latest historical fiction adventure – SUMERFORD’S AUTUMN – is no longer available for download from Amazon or any other online e-book store. I was forced to remove it from sale recently, though I admit I was sorry to do so. I have received a certain amount of success for this book, some excellent reviews and an enormous amount of kind support from online groups, author friends, and many others. I should like to thank everyone very much indeed for this support – it has helped me enormously in the past

But now SUMERFORD’S AUTUMN has been accepted for traditional publication (hard copy plus e-book) and will be brought onto the market in approximately June. The publisher – one of the major houses – has been enthusiastic and highly complementary, so I am delighted. I am most certainly not complaining. However, in the meantime it has naturally meant asking me to remove my own self-published copy from Amazon to leave the rights free for the publisher to republish to coincide with the hard copy release.

I just posted a new article on my blog which deals with the question of the difficulty of classifying certain types of fiction. What do you call it when it's not straight SF, horror, romance, murder, historical or whatever? My novel FAIR WEATHER seems to be one that defies easy placement in a typical publishing category. What do you think?

Fair Weather is an adult medieval thriller that switches between modern day and 13th century England. Molly has always been haunted by the past, and now she finds herself drawn back in time. Her personality divides and she finds herself inhabiting the heart, body and mind of a medieval waif forced to steal and beg to survive in the London streets.There she faces serial murder and a man of mystery, and finally the greatest evil of all. But it is love that keeps her there when nothing else can be understood.

Introduction
Born in England, I grew up amongst artists and authors and started writing at a young age. I published numerous short stories and articles, and worked as an editor, book critic and reader for publishers and television companies. My first marriage produced my three lovely daughters but ended with the death of my husband.

Many adventures later, I met an Italian, fell in love, and spent 16 glorious years with him exploring Europe and sailing the Mediterranean. When he died I needed a place of solace, came to live in rural Australia, and began writing full length novels for the first time. My solace has now become my passion.
 
With a delight in medieval history dating back to my youth, I now began to research the wicked King Richard III, but quickly discovered the fascination of looking past Tudor propaganda to discover the real man. I now write principally on this era, setting my fiction in 15th century England. 

I also write fantasy, though this tends to be dark and adult, not fitting the mould of those fantasy genres popular today. No elves, fairies, vampires or evil wizards attempting to overthrow the empire.
