You see, there was a real-time gap between the two novels and in the mean time I was writing stories that appeared in the Medieval Murderers' books. I always kept chronologically accurate, and in the anthology called 'House of Shadows', published in 2007, there is the story of Saphira's first meeting with William at Bermondsey Abbey. When I later wrote 'Ritual of Death', Saphira already figured in his life. I guess I should have made it clearer with a reference to the incident in the MM story!
My time recently has been somewhat preoccupied with my am-dram pursuits. I was directing the famous farce by Noel Coward, 'Blithe Spirit'. It was hard work as Coward's dialogue is so precise and wordy - tough for the actors. But we came up with a good production in the end, and had 91% ticket sales.
