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 news is that Severn House has recently published Murder in the Holy City – the first Geoffrey Mappestone adventure, which Beau and I wrote under the pseudonym Simon Beaufort. Although the book first appeared in 1998, it was never published in the UK. So now it is easily obtainable, and beautifully produced, as is always the case with Severn House. The second Geoffrey Mappestone tale, A Head for Poisoning, is due out this month, so it will be wonderful to have them both available in new, UK editions. In other news, the tenth Thomas Chaloner mystery – The Cheapside Corpse – appeared this winter, and I’m thrilled, as always, to share another of his investigations with you. 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, the twenty-first Matthew Bartholomew story is due out this coming summer, and I’m already working on the next Chaloner adventure. 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!
