M. J. Logue

Publisher info

I'm a half-trained archivist, retired tarot reader, and I write about the 17th century.

I have five cats, one of whom has a reproachful look and a habit of flatulence.

I have two series of books. I have one set during the Civil Wars, which is funny and sweary and violent and dark, and involves one benighted Parliamentarian commander and a company of cavalry who can pretty much be guaranteed to get into trouble. Although if you're thinking the Three Musketeers, don't. Rosie - he's a redhead - Babbitt is a cantankerous Lancashire Puritan with a dark past who turned respectable in his middle years. He's a husband, a father, a soldier and a Leveller, and he doesn't mess about.

If getting hard and heavy with my troop of Ironsides doesn't apply, you need to consider the other series involving Hollie's mad Puritan lieutenant. It’s just as funny, just as bloody, and rather sexy, and it involves most of the poets, playwrights and mistresses you’ve heard of from Restoration London.
