It's publication day for Penny Green book 8! πŸ“— If you pre-ordered it then hopefully it will be on your kindle now. If not, then there's still time before the price goes up. I hope you enjoy it, it contains my longest ever historical note! There was a lot of research for this one.


Edited to say: paperback on its way!

One of my favourite authors, Agatha Christie, was born on this day in 1890. I love this little book of Miss Marple quotes which I bought last week. πŸ“–

Here's a location I've been wanting to include in the Penny Green series for some time, and I'll finally manage in book 9! Temple Church was built in the 12th century by the Knights Templar as their English HQ. The Knights Templar were a rich and powerful Catholic military order, better described as 'warrior monks' πŸ˜€
The Knights Templar was dissolved by Pope Clement V in the 14th century, but the church is still going strong. Badly damaged in WWII, it's been fully restored and open to visitors. It was famously a location in Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code - both the book and the movie.

"I guessed the man in the bowler hat was a detective as soon as he approached me. I had just left the reading room at the British Museum and was hurrying down the steps to catch an omnibus that would transport me home."

Here are the steps of the British Museum where Penny and James first meet. I took this photo on a sunny July day last year, a bit different to the foggy October day in 1883!
