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 few 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 my most exciting pieces of information is that The Sanctuary Murders, the twenty-fourth Matthew Bartholomew mystery, appeared this past summer. Meanwhile, the fourteenth Thomas Chaloner adventure is already with the publisher and will be out before you know it. 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, earlier this year Severn House published Watchers of the Dead, a London-based Victorian mystery that is a sequel to Mind of a Killer, which Beau and I wrote under the pseudonym Simon Beaufort. Meanwhile, Beau has two new works that should be out before long. Shackleton’s Critic, written with his friend and colleague Angie Butler, is a biography of Eric Stewart Marshall, the chief surgeon on Ernest Shackleton’s Nimrod Expedition, who also participated in a major exploring effort in New Guinea. And Beau has edited and annotated the diary of Archibald Lang McLean, the chief medical officer of Douglas Mawson’s Australasian Antarctic Expedition. This is one of only three diaries from the second year of the AAE known to be extant, so it is of great historic value as well as providing exciting new tales of exploration. From my side, the twenty-fifth Bartholomew is already in the works, as is the fifteenth 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!
