Frances Doughty Mysteries

I love writing about crime, especially Victorian crime. Before the launch of my fiction series set in Bayswater in the 1880s I researched and wrote true crime and historical biography.

It is that fascination for the nineteenth century and those contradictory Victorians that I now bring to my fiction writing.

The Frances Doughty mysteries set in 1880s Bayswater, feature a clever and determined lady detective, who has to battle wily criminals and the prejudices about suitable roles for women. Through her adventures I explore aspects of Victorian life such as diet, education, medicine, women’s rights, fear of premature burial and the fashion for cycling.
