The most rewarding gems I found on this journey are your emails, and your comments on my webpage and Facebook page. You have encouraged me to write more than one book (The Devil's Grin), and with that, you helped me become a full-time author (I'm almost there). But I also have to apologise. If you expected a fifth Anna Kronberg thriller, you might be disappointed by this SciFi that's very far away from the Victorian London we roamed together. But it's just as stinky, dirty, and disease-ridden. So maybe, you'll enjoy it anyway.***

"An unforgettable hero(ine)" Dan Andriacco, best-selling author of Baker Street Beat"You've created a truly fascinating character in Dr Kronberg and set her against one of the finest characters in English mystery fiction. Dr. Kronberg is intelligent, passionate about what she does, assertive in a positive way, and compassionate and empathetic to modern readers. That she must masquerade as a man in order to do what she does best and achieve the success she so richly deserves speaks volumes about the history of women in Western society."
