Tell us about your book.

Put on the Armour of Light is an old-fashioned mystery in the amateur sleuth tradition, with touches of humour and romance. It’s set in Winnipeg in 1899 and the hero is a young Presbyterian minister, Charles Lauchlan. I’m more attracted to mystery books where character and setting are to the fore, and where the detective uses his or her grey matter to solve the crime rather than whizz-bang forensic technology. So that’s the kind of book I tried to write.
