Tuppence in Time: Up and Running

Quick announcement post for you all: TUPPENCE IN TIME is now a website dedicated to my new serial! It follows the story of Tuppence Fothingill, a forensic pathologist, as she falls back in time to the year 1886. While the website is now live (and a short prologue is up), I have yet to set […]
