A quick Q&A with Carol Carr, author of "India Black," and "India Black and the Widow of Windsor," the first two instalments in the "Madam of Espionage" series:There's nothing on the market quite like the India Black novels - do they fill a void that you felt as a reader? Before creating this series, were you a fan of historical murder mysteries, or even historical romance
I'm already doddering. But if I make it to 120, that means I'm not quite middle-aged now and that gives me a warm glow (or maybe it's the chardonnay). I have just finished India #3, which is tentatively entitled India Black and the Dark Legion. India infiltrates a cell of anarchists, with explosive results. I don't have a publication date yet, but I'd anticipate it will see the light of day in the summer or fall of 2012. I do not have a contract beyond the third book, but, ever optimistic, I'll be working on the fourth in the series. Let's see, semiotic deconstruction or India Black and the Horns of the Buffalo, with India and French masquerading as missionaries in Africa? No contest.
