DS Billings Victorian Mysteries Boxset

★★★★★ 'I'm a lover of Victorian mysteries when they're well researched and well written. The Ornamental Hermit meets both those requirements and then some.'

★★★★★ 'The prose draws a foreboding atmosphere. Each character has a unique voice and the author captures them all well.'

★★★★★ 'The main character, John Billings, is extremely sad and extremely likable. I'll be so looking forward to more books about him.'

★★★★★ ' If you love historicals, mystery, character growth, and just an overall intriguing story then this series is definitely worth reading.'

★★★★★ 'Bosman meshes the mystery with the personal character study intricately. Neither ever dominates the page. Each scene follows logically from the previous. The reader doesn’t wonder what’s happening just offstage. An excellent book'

★★★★★ 'There are so many factors that will keep you on your toes trying to figure out what each new page will bring'

★★★★★ 'The protagonist has just the right amount of personal demons to spice up the tale, plus the author gets the late Victorian era details just right.'

About me

Born to Dutch parents and raised in Colombia and England, I am a rootless wanderer with itchy feet. I've spent the last few years living and working in The Netherlands, Czech Republic, Sudan and Bulgaria, but I have every confidence that I will now finally be able to settle down among the olive groves of Andalucia. 

I am an avid reader and film fan (in fact, my study is overflowing with my various dvd collections!) 

I did an MA in creative writing for film and television at the University of Sheffield.  After a failed attempt at making a career as a screenwriter, I turned to the theater and wrote and produced a play called ´Death Takes a Lover´ (which has since been turned into the first D.S.Billings Victorian Mystery). The play was performed on the London Fringe to great critical acclaim.

I am currently living in Spain where I make ends meet by teaching English .
