What’s New?


My Books

My new book on the history of the curious relationship between Agatha Christie and Miss Marple is now readily available as paperback and ebook. They are published under by own imprint Priskus Books and are distributed by York Publishing Services.  For further details, and how to buy a copy of either, just click  Agatha Christie and Shrewd Miss Marple.   

First published in late September 2017, by Christmas the book had aroused enough interest to justify a reprint.  New Year signs are that that interest is continuing.  

I have now deleted from this site two of the articles about Agatha Christie because much of the material they contained is now absorbed within the book. But this is not so true of Miss Marple and Amelia Butterworth which is retained.  And, I have added two entirely new articles,  Margaret Rutherford as Miss Marple  and St. Mary Mead and Crawley New Town, both of which can be read here. Just click the titles. 

My previous book Autobiographical Tales is still available. Click the title here for more about it and how to buy a copy.
