I have written a series of books about a French Police agent at the time of Napoleon. I intend to eventually write 15 books - covering the years 1800 to 1815. After I wrote the first, Duval and the Infernal Machine, I was asked to submit a short story to the Waterloo Anthology which was being sold in support of the restoration of the chateau of Hougoumont. This short story grew into the last book of the series, Duval at Waterloo. I did not plan this, I simply responded to circumstances. I have now been filling in the gaps, Duval and the Empress's Crown set in 1804 and Duval and the Italian Opera Singer (1805). Not sure which one will be next. The whole process with this series has been topsy-turvey. Has anyone else faced the same dilemma?
