About this story

‘Stolen Letters’ is my first Victorian novel that I have written (yey!) My characters have demanded a sequel for years because their story was not finished, and I have always wondered what would happen if Frederick returned to London…

This book was inspired by a several 19th century writers, e.g. Oscar Wilde, Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, and the Brontë sisters as well as various modern series and movies (Penny Dreadful and Sherlock Holmes, among others).

The initial idea behind ‘Blackmail’ came from a scene in the BBC production Downton Abbey between the footman Thomas and his lover.

I tend to do quite a bit of research for all of my stories, and for ‘Stolen Letters’ I read everything I could about Victorian clothes and fashion, illegal gambling, prison life in the Victorian era. I have also visited Dartmoor and London several times. (I tend to bring my old camera and take vintage photos that I use for references and inspiration).

‘Stolen Letters’ was written in longhand in three Paperblanks journals. Any French spelling mistakes are mine (and mine alone) and should not be on blamed Vincent, Micah, or any other of the characters in the book.

First 100 words:

28th of October, 1860. Regent Street, London.

All is lost, forever. The worst thing possible has happened! My secret letters are gone! They have been stolen! I do not know where to begin describing what has happened or what I should do.

I do not know who took the letters, and I do not even dare think about what will happen if they fall into the wrong hands. I should have burned them!

Oh, why did I not burn the letters when I had the chance? Why do I never learn from my mistakes?
