Introduce yourself!
I am stuck in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. I write very traditional Sherlock Holmes pastiches, as well as alternate histories. My latest is a Verne/Wells/Dr. Who type thing set in 1885 Paris.
What do you hope to find at The Steampunk Writers & Artists Guild?

I first joined S.W.A.G. some years ago, when my first novel, involving Confederates, Nazis, and a giant airship, was published. Since then, I rather lost touch with the Guild, despite being firmly stuck in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Since that first novel, I have published many others (my Amazon page is here), including a "dieselpunk" or "steampulp" novel set in pre-Revolutionary Russia, and a thriller set in Japan.

My main output has been Sherlock Holmes…

The Secret Notebook of Michael Faraday, my second novel in the Airship Flamel Advenstures Series is now available!

The book is a prequel to my first novel To Rule the Skies, although I think of it more as just coming first chronologically.  It follows the main character from my previous novel, Nicodemus Boffin, from his boyhood to about a decade before the events in To Rule the Skies.The synopsis:Nicodemus Boffin, a uncommonly clever boy…See More
