Privacy Policy

I really don’t need your personal data. I’m not trying to sell anything (although if you buy my books about Victorian poisoners then obviously that’d make me happy). I haven’t switched on commenting so the only personal info I will have from you is what you might send me if you decide to email me.


See my cookie policy. Sadly this does not involve biscuits. I wish it did. It would be more interesting and certainly more useful.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

So in other words, if you click on a Youtube video or buy something using an Amazon link, it’s their privacy policy you’ll have to get on board with.

Who we share your data with

No-one! Because I’m nice like that. It’s quite annoying I have to fill out this page to tell you I don’t share you data, thanks to all those unscrupulous plonkers out there who have made lots of money selling the fact that you buy dog biscuits on Amazon to some third party you don’t even know, but quiet honestly, I have far more interesting things to do with my time such as trim my toe nails.

How long we retain your data

I keep hold of emails that people send me in case I need to refer back to them later.

What rights you have over your data

If you don’t want me to have your data, don’t email me. There. Simple.

Where we send your data

Literally nowhere.
