Off to Ripper Con 2013

7 November 2013


Hello there everyone! Sorry that I’ve been so quiet lately but I’ve been really caught up with finishing off my Jack the Ripper novel From Whitechapel (which is now completely finished AT LONG LAST!) and then in getting ready for this weekend’s Jack the Ripper Conference in the East End of London.

This is a particularly exciting conference for me as I am going to be the first speaker on Saturday morning, when I will be presenting my paper on the mysteries surrounding Mary Jane Kelly, the Ripper’s final and most famous canonical victim. It’s going to be a bit eerie actually as it’ll be the 125th anniversary of her body’s discovery in her room on Miller’s Court and I’m speaking just an hour after the actual time in the actual room where her inquest took place. It’s going to be a bit special and also a bit creepy.


I’m also doing something else rather special but all will be revealed in due course.

Anyway, I have to go and pack now BUT I’ll be back next week with a full and probably highly illustrated report of the weekend’s Ripper related activities and I expect that my normal posting schedule will resume after that as well now that I’m a bit less busy!

Have a great weekend everyone!
