The Parasol Protectorate Series

Beginning with Soulless, these five books chronicle the exploits of Alexia Tarabotti, a lady of considerable assets including large Scottish werewolf, battle-parasol, gossip, and treacle tart tenancies. Oh yes, and she has no soul.

The Finishing School Series

Sophronia is secretly recruited to a finishing academy located in a giant caterpillar-like dirigible floating over Dartmoor in which young ladies are taught to . . . finish . . . everything . . . and everyone . . . as needed. Book the First, Etiquette & Espionage, released early 2013 with three more to follow.

The Custard Protocol Series

The British Empire is deflating, only Rue and her marauding team of outrageous miscreants in their high-tech dirigible, the Spotted Custard, are still charging about trying to fix things, loudly and mainly with tea. The first book in this series is Prudence.
