More Random London Pics

Once again, for anyone who doesn’t know, I visited London in March, but got too caught up in finishing my latest book to post all the pictures. Here are a few more of my favorites.

Me in an Anderson shelter in the Imperial War Museum.

Getting the chance to sit in an authentic Anderson shelter was quite an experience. It was so small! Dr. Bones will have one in his back garden in book #2, the upcoming Divorce Can Be Deadly. Poor man, I don’t think it will be too comfortable for him and Mrs. Cobblepot, trying to rest out there in the winter, an inch of water on the earth floor (that was a big problem with Anderson shelters) while wondering if a bomb will flatten Fenton House. Or if a direct hit will send them both to kingdom come. And to think entire families used to spend hours in these things–Dad, Mum, two or three fidgeting, miserable kids, and perhaps a crying baby in arms.

I love this interior of a "typical home" during the Blitz.

All right, those were of course just a few gems. More tomorrow! Now, I need to work on that next book.
