My name is Kit Ward and I am, as the tagline on this website says, a writer of mysteries and histories. Let’s begin with the mysteries.
Calypso Bergère Mysteries
My first fiction series is the Calypso Bergère Mysteries, set in 1930s France. There are three books, all novellas, available right now:
Each of these books has an average 4+ stars on Amazon and GoodReads, and you can get the first in the series for 99p or 99¢ in the Amazon stores. I plan to make the books available in other stores such as Apple Books and Kobo in the next twelve months.
The fourth book in the series, a full-length novel, will be released later this year. The series is published under the pen name JP Sorel.
Why did I use a different pen name for those books? Well,, because my first books were non-fiction, and I didn’t want to confuse readers who might not be interested in fiction. Which brings me on to the histories.
I started my writing life by blogging about British places and history. The blog is called These Islands, and while its focus remains the same, there are occasional digressions.
I have published two London history trails:
These books are available in the Amazon, Apple Books, Google Play, and Kobo stores. The third book in the series, an Oxford history trail, should be available later this year.
Web and Social Media
This website is where you can find information about my books and where to buy them, news on what’s in the pipeline, and blog posts on whatever happens to have caught my attention.
My other website, These Islands, is where I write about Britain, mostly its places and history, with the odd digression.
