The Right Chair Press is my own imprint, for my self published range. The name comes from one of the key elements in the Cambridge Fellows series, but maybe you guessed that already.
The new Cambridge Fellows novella, Lessons in Keeping a Dangerous Promise is out now. Jonty Stewart and Orlando Coppersmith like nothing better than being asked to solve mysteries, but when they get commissioned to help someone fulfil a vow he made to a late comrade in arms, matters start to cut too close to home for both of them.

The Shade on a Fine Day:

He has his sights set elsewhere, for a love he’s not allowed to indulge. One night, eight for dinner at the Canon’s table means the potential arrival of a ghost. But what message will the spirit bring and which of the young men around the table is it for?
