After an earlier career spent working and travelling around the world, including stints as cook on an outback cattle station, interpreter on expedition in Cameroon and English teacher in Jakarta, Pamela stumbled into writing as a way of funding a PhD in Medieval Studies. Settling at last in York, for several years she combined academic research with a successful career as a romance writer. Her thesis on the streets of later medieval and early modern York was finally completed in 2004 and she continues to work (very slowly) on a scholarly edition of the wardmote court records that formed the basis of her research. The Memory of Midnight is her second novel based on her study of Elizabethan York and written under her real name. "

Saw my first daffodils of the year this morning, and was hoping it meant that spring was on its way ... but it's a wild night outside right now, so I may have been a little optimistic.

Am deep in deadline mode at the moment. There's something very satisfying about rewriting a truly shitty Shitty First (OK, Fifth) Draft and then burning it on the fire. More flames to come tonight, I hope!

Very happy to be back in York for a couple of nights - enjoyed my walk across town in the dark for dinner tonight, past some familiar sights.

How to make life difficult for yourself ... Announcing the return of Jessica Hart!
Writing two books at once, editing two projects and caring for two elderly parents ... double excuses all the way for why I'm spending so little time on social media nowadays. Please hang in there though! I'm ever hopeful that I'll get on top of it all any day now ...

I had lunch with my new editor in (groovy) King's Cross today - and am now happy to announce that my new book, THE CURSED WIFE, will be published by Pan Macmillan in February 2018. So, time for a little celebration, and then back to work, as I still have some writing to do ...
