With the 9th Thomas Berrington book now published I am catching my breath before diving back into his next adventure, which will be set in England as Catherine of Aragon arrives to marry Prince Arthur. While that percolates in the back of my brain I have started a new series.
An Imperfect Future is a bit of a departure, and may not appeal to all my current readers, but might attract some different ones. It’s pitched as a World War 2 Paranormal Spy Thriller. The book is currently halfway through a first draft and going quickly. I’m planning on releasing it sometime early next year before starting work on Thomas Berrington 10.
The book is set in 1944 after the Normandy landings and features a small group of individuals recruited because they exhibit unusual talents that the authories believe may make them useful to the war effort. The main character is Calum Auger, who can see 1o seconds into the future. Not particularly impressive, until he finds himself as the bomb-aimer in a Lancaster on its 48th mission. Calum’s crew likes to fly with him, because he always knows where the flak is going to explode. Except nobody mentions his strange ability.
With the creation of Unit-13, Calum is recruited, together with others, and their training begins. Before they are able to fully come to terms with what they are their expertise is needed. Tracking down stolen documents that might yet save Nazi Germany from defeat, the group race through France to stop their adversaries handing over the secrets they stole.

Hi. When do you think the follow up to The Death of Innocence will be published?
Brilliant storyline! I hope this book is the first of many involving unit-13, the writing is so vivid you can empathise easy with the protagonists …. Almost like you become a member of the team.

Hi Polly – the book is with my proofreader right now. As soon as I get it back it will take about a week to get it up on Amazon. Assuming I get it the middle of next week that means it should be out around the 9th Feb.
How lovely of you to respond to my convoluted query…you cannot know how pleased I am to hear from you! And…how every pleased I am to know that the new book will be available so soon! I am ecstatic! You are, in my humb!e opinion, one of the best writers around, and I have to remind myself that your well developed characters do not belong to me! Please keep writing…forever. Thanks again for your response. Polly
