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 past few weeks the Medieval Murderers – in the form of Mike Jecks, Karen Maitland, and I – travelled across the sea together for the first time. Granted, it was only across the narrow sea to Northern Ireland, but it was an exciting time, as we appeared at the Omagh Library as part of Libraries Northern Ireland’s Celtic Crime Festival, and then the next morning we spoke at the Holywood Library in Holywood, County Down. What interested and interesting audiences we had – they were so much fun to be with! And we were so well taken care of by the wonderful folks from Libraries Northern Ireland – the whole trip was so enjoyable! One of the last things we did was go to Titanic Belfast, the outstanding museum located at the site at which that famous ship was built. It was very special to walk in and have one of the first things I saw be the new edition of Beau’s book on Titanic, especially as it was given pride of place on the books in the museum shop! In other news, 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!
