Hello everyone!

I'm an ex-Southwark girl, having spent my childhood there. I attended Trinity House School, now the Globe Academy, in SE1.

My book on the Southwark Poisoner, George Chapman, has just come out in paperback.

It's the true story of the landlord of the Crown, Borough High Street, SE.1. who was arrested for poisoning his young girlfriend in 1902 and found to have also killed his two previous lady-friends. He was hanged in 1903.

Whilst on Death Row he was suspected of being Jack the Ripper by the very chief detective inspector who had charge of the Ripper murders.

My book has only been out a few weeks, and has already received over 20 5-star reviews on Amazon!

The book is called "Jack the Ripper At Last". It's available in paperback and on Kindle.

If you would like a personally signed and dedicated copy, please contact me direct.

I'm giving a public talk this Saturday 5th Arpil, under the auspices of the Whitechapel Society. It's at the Bell in Middlesex Street, starting 7.30pm.

If there is a local history organisation in SE1 who would like to invite me, I am available for public talks in the subject.

Hi again

Can anyone recommend a place in SE1 that might sell my book? When I was researching, the JH Library sold local history but they have stopped now.

Hello ... can anyone actually see this thread? I'm starting to think it's invisible. Have I posted this in the wrong section? Can admin tell me what's up?
