Message:Thanks, Ellen, I'm glad that you like the books.
Oddly enough, sometimes something you read while researching brings an idea.
Otherwise I suppose because I read a lot I have lots of ideas in my head.
Have you read The Montgomery Murder? That is my latest book - it's a bout London, not Ireland

Message:Lisa: Yes, I meant in the early days of the sixteenth century - and afterwards.
I've a feeling that there was one of the clan, called 'the blind abbot', who was prominant in the time of Queen Elizabeth I.
You will probably find quite a lot about the family on the Internet if you look it up - where do you live - Ireland or America?

Message:Sorry, Lisa, for the delay. I meant to look up my notes and forgot until now.

Yes, the name Mac William came originally from the Burkes - an anglo norman family. They split into two clans - The Mac William (son of William) and ClanRickarde (sons of Rickarde or Richard). Both clans were very powerful in the west of Ireland at that time.

Hope this helps.

Message:Hi Cora

Just finished reading My Lady Judge. On p. 135, it mentions a MacWilliam. Did this have any basis? Was there MacWilliam's in Ireland to your knowledge?
Thanks

Message:Pauline: I look forward to hearing from you. I hope that you enjoy 1798

Isaac: I I hope that you like Deadly Fire. Please let me know - and especially useful is to know whether you guessed the murderer or whether it was a great surprise to you. Murder on Stage should be out at the end of the year.

Message:"I Was Jane Austen's best Friend" was based really on what is known about her life and about the life of of Jenny Cooper.

There are characters in the story which resemble characters in all of the Jane Austen books. I had fun imagining Jane noticing interesting or amusing things about people around her and that later on she put them into her books.

Message:Thanks, Isobel. You'll be glad to know that there is a follow-up to 'I Was Jane Austen's Best Friend'. Did you notice that the first book is not really the end of the story? Book 2 will be out next spring.
Don't worry about being good at English or not - that has very little to do with writing a good story. The most important thing is to like reading and to enjoy making up a story.
I'd love to see it when you've finished it.
Are you living in England, or Ireland?
