My Books


My most recent book, Agatha Christie and Shrewd Miss Marple, was published in September 2018. It explores the curious, and to my mind central, relationship between the author and one of her most celebrated fictional characters. It is published under my own imprint Priskus Books, distributed by York Publishing Services, and available as both paperback and ebook. For further details, and how to buy a copy, just click  Agatha Christie and Shrewd Miss Marple.    

I have deleted from this site two articles about Agatha Christie because the material they contained is now fully absorbed within the book. But I felt that this was not quite true of Miss Marple and Amelia Butterworth which is retained. Furthermore, I have now added two new articles,  Margaret Rutherford as Miss Marple  and St. Mary Mead and Crawley New Town. These also are substantially expanded from basic details in the book and can only be read here. Just click the titles. 

My previous book,  Autobiographical Tales, also published by Priskus and distributed by YPS, is still obtainable. Click here on the title for more information.
