Janie joins the seventies!

With the publication of the latest novel in the Janie Juke series – A Notable Omission – we find Janie in the spring of 1970 exploring her new-found skills as an amateur sleuth. Once again she has local reporter, Libby Frobisher, by her side. Here’s a reminder of the story…

Spring 1970. Sussex University is hosting a debate about equality for women. But when one of the debating group goes missing, attention turns away from social injustice to something more sinister.

It seems every one of the group has something to hide, and when a second tragedy occurs, two of the delegates – amateur sleuth Janie Juke, and reporter Libby Frobisher – are prepared to make themselves unpopular to flush out the truth. Who is lying and why?

Alongside the police investigation, Janie and Libby are determined to prise answers from the tight-lipped group, as they find themselves in a race against time to stop another victim being targeted.

Here, in this Q&A blog from bookafterbook, I’ve provided plenty of background details about the inspiration behind the story, insight into my thoughts on the next novel in the series, as well as a couple of tips for aspiring writers!

Don’t miss out on the last chance to get Janie’s latest adventure –  A Notable Omission  – at the discounted price of just £1.99 ($2.99) but only until 31 January 2023!

PS.  A Notable Omission  is also now available in paperback.
