Fay Sampson Discovers Recurring Themes in Her Work

By Fay Sampson ~ April 20, 2015

t’s strange how some ideas haunt you, turning up repeatedly in your work, even when you don’t consciously will it. 

When I set out to write the Aidan Mysteries I wanted to set them in sacred places that had seized my imagination when I first visited them – a wonderful excuse, too, for a second, in-depth pilgrimage. I set the third of these, A Corpse in Holy Waters, around the sacred wells of Cornwall and Devon.

Children of Silence--New Frances Doughty Release

To welcome Frances to this side of the Atlantic her creator Linda Stratmann, whom I first met a year ago at the Queens of Crime conference in London, is here to tell us about creating Frances' latest adventures.

Richard III Inspires Reflection on Crime Novels

By Fay Sampson ~ March 23, 2015

 I have just been watching the opening stages in the reburial of the bones of Richard III, who was killed at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485. He was the last of the Plantaganet kings and the last English king to die in battle.

It is the culmination of a remarkable story. The victor Henry Tudor, who became Henry VII,... Read More
