Murder and Mayhem in Swansea

On Saturday 12 October 2013 I am speaking in Swansea Central library at 2.00 pm. I have called the talk “How things do Prosper” and I will be talking about  6 murders. One is quite well documented – but I have uncovered some new and fascinating information about Thomas Allen who murdered the owner of the Gloucester Hotel in 1889. The other 5 are much less well known – but interesting and tragic. You really do need to know about poor Lily Maud Challenger.

Be seeing you


  1. Recently discovered the circumstances of my great, great aunt’s death (Lily Challenger).

    Do you cover the events in any of your books. Would be great to get in contact if you have time.

    1. Thank you for your message! I have emailed you with some details – and a sketch of Lily. I hope you find the email useful
      Best wishes

  2. Would like to know more of the details of Thomas Allen and the Gloucester Hotel Murder, please. I have a personal interest.
