Beyond the Books

I don’t know about other writers but while writing The Maze of Cadiz and Washington Shadow, I have spent a lot of time building background details - not always to add to the books, but to provide me with a consistent and solid foundation. I thought I’d share some of this back structure and, over time, gradually fill Peter Cotton out in other aspects.

To begin with, then, along with his biographical details, some letters  - from Beyond the Books.
