IN THE PIPELINE
I am currently working on a new novel set in the early years of the twentieth century. The main character is a composite of real people of the time and real events. The novel is scheduled for completion by the end of 2020.
A third novel is also being planned, unrelated to my first and second novels and scheduled for completion in Summer 2021.
Work has started on a new book on paintings. (September 2018). This book is likely to take several years to complete, allowing for several years of research thus far to be used and new research!
