Author and writer living in London. Six non-fiction books, one of which (published by WIley) has been in the best-seller lists for three years since publication. Various works of fiction including two additions to the immortal "Mapp and Lucia" stories. Currently seeking a publisher for my narrative history of the Plantagenets, which was nominated for a Royal Society of Literature prize.
Duckworth have been bought by Bloomsbury, apparently. One less independent publisher. Surprising that the Monopoly authorities are not starting to look at the world of publishing. It would be fascinating to know what percentage of the market the top two or three have between them.
