It’s mine! All mine! A 1923 Remington vintage typewriter just like the one my character Poppy Denby would have used in her job on the Daily Globe. Bid against seven other people and won! Came in £8 under my top price. A belated birthday present from my darling husband and daughter. Now just waiting for the baby to be delivered ..
I am delighted to announce that I have just signed a contract with Lion Fiction for the first in a series of mystery novels, set in the 1920s. Tentatively called ‘Above the Fold’, the first of the Poppy Denby Mysteries, it will be coming out in September in the UK, and soon after that, elsewhere. Poppy is a female reporter on a London newspaper in the Roaring Twenties. Here is a cartoon that a friend of mine, Chris Bambrough, did on hearing the news.
