    • That’s lovely to hear. Thank you for taking the trouble to tell me. I hope you enjoy book two. I’m just putting the final touches to book three Kitty Peck and the Daughter of Sorrow, hopefully out in autumn this year. Kate


  1. I was attracted to “…the Music Hall Murders” in my local library for two main reasons, I love crime fiction and I also very much enjoy reading about Victorian social history – especially if it involves either my hometown of Liverpool or the East End of London. I very much enjoyed your book and shall be reserving a copy of the second Kitty Peck book at my library (unfortunately, my funds are limited and I’m a very fast reader, capable of reading up to two books daily, if the mood is upon me, and I simply cannot afford to buy that many unless I can find them in the charity shop opposite my home! Oh, but what fun I could have in a book shop if I won the lottery!) Thank you for your book and please accept my apologies for rambling on!


    • Thank you so much. Really glad to hear that. Kitty Peck 2 – that’s Kitty Peck and the Child of Ill Fortune is definitely available in libraries and I hope the next and third in the series, Kitty Peck and the Daughter of Sorrow (out in November) will be available to borrow too.
      Libraries are fantastic – we mustn’t lose them!!
      Thanks again for taking the time to contact me. Kx


      • I just double-checked the Liverpool libraries online catalogue and they definitely DO have your second book (which I have now reserved!)…I wholeheartedly agree about the importance of libraries – unfortunately, my local library is fighting to stay open due to budget cuts. It’s been given a temporary reprieve whilst they try to find a long term solution but it’s idea they had was to staff it with volunteers but the current staff are lovely, friendly, helpful and KNOWLEDGEABLE people and I would hate to lose them! These are difficult times for a lot of people.
        I look forward to reading more books from you in future and thank you for responding.


      • Our wonderful libraries are definitely worth fighting for. Recently I’ve done a few events for libraries and they’ve made me realise that among the many great things most of us are probably familiar with, libraries also provide a fantastic social ‘hub’ for people who, for a variety of reasons, can feel isolated, lonely or just a bit ‘out of step.
        It’s been lovely to meet really diverse groups of book lovers and to be a part of their (animated) conversations. Over tea and biscuits, of course!
        The librarians I’ve met have been fantastically committed, interested and welcoming.
        Books really can a make a difference to lives!
