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 Clerkenwell Affair, the fourteenth Thomas Chaloner adventure, appeared this past summer. Meanwhile, the twenty-fifth Matthew Bartholomew mystery 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, Beau has one book that has just come out and another that should be available before long. The Antarctic Diary of Archibald Lang McLean, which he edited and annotated, is the account of 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. Before the end of the year, you should see Shackleton’s Critic, written with his friend and colleague Angie Butler, which 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. Looking down the line, the fifteenth Chaloner adventure is already in the works, and Beau is working on a book about the great Antarctic explorer Frank Wild. 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!
