I have had an email from a fan asking about my progress on the Georgian novel featuring Joe Malinferno and Doll Pocket. It made me feel guilty about the lack of progress I have been amking on both it and the new Falconer book. I confess I have not been writing much for the last three months, and now I must remedy that. I am split between making headway with either book, and need to decide which one I will concentrate on first. The Falconer has been begun, and calls me more urgently, whereas the Georgian book needs more research. But research fascinates me more than the task of writing! Maybe I can dovetail both together.
In the meantime, my am-dram hobby calls and I am going to direct "Blithe Spirit" by Noel Coward in July. It is a perennial favourite in the theatre, and I shall be looking for fresh ideas to revive it for a new audience.
