My Books

My new book on the history of the curious relationship between Agatha Christie and Miss Marple is now in print. The Daily Mail welcomed it as its 'Book of the Week' with an enthusiastic review by author Roger Lewis who particularly liked the way the book challenges the negative attitudes to Christie that are still so depressingly common. To read the full review click  Agatha's secret weapon: revenge by inventing Miss Marple The book is published under my own imprint Priskus Books and is available from York Publishing Services. For further details, and how to buy a copy of the book, go to Agatha Christie and Shrewd Miss Marple.

An ebook version  is currently in preparation and will be available shortly. 

I have 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.
