16 July 2021: Check out my local author promotion at Fleet Library

As a local author, Fleet Library kindly featured me on their social media pages, along with the following staff recommendation for Death at a Crookham Hall (previously published as The Suffragette's Daughter):

"Set in 1920’s post-war Britain, Iris Woodmore is a young and ambitious trainee journalist tasked with writing about the forthcoming elections. Iris attends a debate at the House of Commons with Sybil Siddons, the third woman to stand for Parliament. During the visit, Iris comes across information which raises doubts about the circumstances surrounding her mother Violet’s death, 6 years earlier when she drowned in the Thames during her participation in a suffragettes' protest. Iris also finds out that fellow suffragette, Rebecca, who accompanied her mother, disappeared shortly after the incident. What happened to Rebecca has never been established. Iris is a determined, progressive, young woman who wants to find answers and will not stop until she does. This is a story of secrets, families, politics and a pinch of romance. I would not hesitate to recommend it as a good read."
