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. Such as that in the upcoming days the Medieval Murderers – in the form of Mike Jecks, Karen Maitland, and I – will be travelling across the sea together for the first time. Granted, it is only across the narrow sea to Northern Ireland, but it is certainly a thrilling prospect. We are going to appear at the Omagh Library at 7 pm on Wednesday, 22 October, as part of Libraries Northern Ireland’s Celtic Crime Festival. At 11:30 the next morning we will be talking at the Holywood Library in Holywood, County Down, just outside of Belfast. If any of you live in Ireland or Northern Ireland, please do come. And if you don’t, well, why don’t you come over for it, like we are! Such a trip would also give you the chance to go the fabulous Titanic Belfast, where you can explore the history of that great ship (about which Beau wrote an exciting book, a new edition of which has just come out). We’ll hope to see you there. Meanwhile, the twentieth Matthew Bartholomew tale – Death of a Scholar – appeared this summer, and I’m excited, as always, to share another of his investigations with you. The next Thomas Chaloner mystery is not too far away as well, and around the same time it comes out, we are expecting to finally see Mertz and I – the diary of Antarctic explorer Belgrave Ninnis, which Beau edited with Allan Mornement. It looks sensational as it goes through its final stages. So with all of these options, we hope you find one, or more, that you’ll enjoy.
Thank you again for visiting. Please come back soon!
