Downham Market Library, Norfolk UK

On May 19 I was due to give a book talk at Downham Market Library in Norfolk, UK. However due to a close family member becoming seriously ill the trip was cancelled. NOW thanks to technology and the wonderful Fran Valentine pictured below and who is the head librarian there, the talk will GO AHEAD virtually. I’m so looking forward to seeing some devoted readers who have become friends as well as many other lovely people who’ve read my Clement Wisdom series.

Thanks to Lynne who also was instrumental in making this talk happen. Hopefully the technology will not let us down and the library event to be held on Friday May 19 at 2pm will be a great success.

Please check with Downham Market Library for further details – it would be wonderful to see you there if you can make it.

BookLife Prize Review

I recently received a review from BookLife Prize for West Wind Clear, my fourth book in the Clement Wisdom Series.

 Plot: West Wind Clear is the fourth title in the Clement Wisdom series, which centres on the titular character, who was once a married vicar in East Sussex before being recruited as an intelligence operative. Knox brilliantly blends history with espionage and compassionate characterization.

Prose: Knox’s prose offers a winning blend of voice-driven warmth and historical detail. 

Originality: While subtle in its execution, Knox brings a quiet and unique power to the page.

Character/Execution: Readers will benefit from having read the previous titles in the series, but Clement will nevertheless leave an impact on first-time readers as, in this instalment, Knox whisks her protagonist away to far-flung war-time regions. 

West Wind Clear is the fourth book in the Clement Wisdom Series available from all online booksellers and in selected bookstores.

Canberra November 12

My thanks to Rebecca and her team at The Pulp Book Cafe (O’Hanlon Place, Nicholls) in North Canberra for stocking the four books in my Clement Wisdom WW2 espionage novels and for inviting me to their wonderful cafe book shop to meet their readers and sign books on Saturday November 12.

See you there.


Sending a huge thank you to Celtic life magazine magazine for the editorial and ad about my Clement Wisdom series. Set in WW2 the series follows one man’s journey from a rural English village to the clandestine world of espionage and special operations.
