warm welcome to the website of Susanna Gregory, the author of numerous medieval murder mysteries, Restoration whodunits, and other historical crime fiction. Thank you for taking the time to visit.
This is the place where you can find out more about:
- Matthew Bartholomew and the books set in 14th century Cambridge
- Thomas Chaloner and Restoration London
- Simon Beaufort’s Crusader knight Geoffrey Mappestone in the early 12th century, as well as a couple of more-modern mysteries
- The Medieval Murderers
- Beau Riffenburgh and his history books
You will also always be able to find information here about my latest books.
And if there is any special news to tell you, this will be the place to find it. One of the most exciting pieces of information is that A Poisonous Plot, the twenty-first Matthew Bartholomew tale, has recently been published. This was hot on the heels of the tenth Thomas Chaloner mystery – The Cheapside Corpse – which appeared this past winter. I certainly had a great time researching and writing both of them, and I hope that you find them as enjoyable as I did. In other news, Severn House recently published A Head for Poisoning – the second Geoffrey Mappestone adventure, which Beau and I wrote under the pseudonym Simon Beaufort. Although the book first appeared in 1998 – last century!!! – it was never published in the UK. So now it is easily obtainable, and beautifully produced, as is always the case with Severn House. Also this winter, Mertz and I, the long-awaited diary of Antarctic explorer Belgrave Ninnis, which Beau edited with Allan Mornement, was published. The Erskine Press always produces absolutely top-quality books, and this one is no different. Looking ahead, Beau is working on the edited diaries of Andy Watson and Alexander Kennedy, two members of the little-known Western Base on Douglas Mawson’s Australasian Antarctic Expedition. So there will be lots of new exciting tales there! Meanwhile, the eleventh Thomas Chaloner adventure will be coming out later this year, and I’m already working on the twenty-second Matthew Bartholomew story. So with all of these options, I hope you will find one, or more, books that will give you a great reading experience.
Thank you again for visiting. Please come back soon!
