With thanks to the good people at Ripper Casebook for their diligent research and debate, I've managed to publish my one and only Ripper novel.
BURIED IN TIME is a spin-off from Touchstone, my series of time travel historical adventures, and is set in July, 1888.
Two months before Jack the Ripper’s Whitechapel murders begin, a killer stalks the streets of Victorian Birmingham, the heart of England’s industrial revolution.
The fact that William Bury, Arthur Conan Doyle, Catherine Eddowes and Tom Conway all lived and worked in the city of Birmingham at one time or another has inspired the fantasy of these pages. That fantasy emerged from two simple, irresistible questions: what if they all crossed paths in Birmingham in July 1888, just two months before the Whitechapel murders began? And what if they crossed paths with a character from my Touchstone time travel universe?
I'm really hoping the Casebook community enjoys it as an entertainment, first of all, but one that is hopefully based on the solid foundations they've built.
I found myself going back to it again and again at the end to change little facts here and there, before I forced myself to let it go. I could have gone on forever!
I've never written a novel [texts yes when I had similar issues] the bride has, so can really appreciate what you are saying, it gets to a stage where you simply have to "let go" or it will never be finished.

There are two ways to be fooled, one is to believe what isn't true, the other is to refuse to believe that which is true.
