Class on Crime in Regency England

I will be teaching a class on Crime and Crime Detection in Regency England through the Regency Academe, sponsored by the Beau Monde Chapter of RWA. This is an online class--I believe you have to be a member of Beau Monde to take it.

The class will start Nov. 10, and will cover the various police agencies (Bow Street Runners, Thames River Police), and the process by which a suspect was arrested, bound over, tried, and convicted. I'll also cover the role of the Runner or other detective in finding evidence and prosecuting, and what the suspect's rights were. I'll discuss all kinds of interesting stuff pertaining to crime and trials in Regency England.

I am still in the process of transferring my Web site. It will be inactive for a while, but all the information on my books is here on this blog. Feel free to email me at with any questions.
