Back again, back again, back again home!

Back from my travels which were wonderful–except for the phlegmy funk I picked up in Paris. (I blame the skeletons in the Catacombs…) Anyway, a few weeks ago, I did an interview with Write Around The Corner, a show produced by Blue Ridge PBS–and they decided to kick off their season with my episode! We filmed it at the local botanical gardens just at the end of butterfly season, and you’ll spot lots of winged friends popping by during the interview. Enjoy!

The newest Veronica (March 2020) is ready for pre-order! We have a gorgeous cover (thanks to the enormously talented art department at Berkley):

Want to know more? Here’s a sneak peek at Veronica’s latest adventure:

Veronica Speedwell navigates a dark world of scandal and murder in this new adventure from New York Times bestselling and Edgar Award nominated author Deanna Raybourn.

Veronica Speedwell and her natural historian colleague Stoker are asked by Lady Wellingtonia Beauclerk to help with a potential scandal so explosive it threatens to rock the monarchy. Prince Albert Victor is a regular visitor to the most exclusive private club in London, known as the Club de l’Etoile, and the proprietess, Madame Aurore, has received an expensive gift that can be traced back to the prince. Lady Wellie would like Veronica and Stoker to retrieve the jewel from the club before scandal can break.

Worse yet, London is gripped by hysteria in the autumn of 1888, terrorized by what would become the most notorious and elusive serial killer in history, Jack the Ripper–and Lady Wellie suspects the prince may be responsible.

Veronica and Stoker reluctantly agree to go undercover at Madame Aurore’s high class brothel, where another body soon turns up. Many secrets are swirling around Veronica and the royal family–and it’s up to Veronica and Stoker to find the truth, before it’s too late for all of them.

All the pre-order info here!

A giveaway!

Lovely news–my publisher, Berkley, is giving away a copy of MILADY, a JUST published rollicking swashbuckler of a novel by Laura L. Sullivan. (We all know the best part of “The Three Musketeers” from 1973 was Faye Dunaway as Milady de Winter, right? Am I the only one who longs for her cage hood and pearls?) MILADY is a retelling of the Musketeers adventure through the eyes of one of literature’s greatest villainesses. It’s a lush romp–a perfect summer travel read. If you’d like to enter, head over to my Instagram feed and check it out! (If you’re not already an Instagram follower of mine, just click on the Instagram logo below and it will take you straight to my page.) Contest closes Wednesday–good luck!
