Cornelius Quaint Timeline

Hello you.

Just a quickie today; I’m currently working hard on BEYOND HIS YEARS, the 3rd part in the trilogy after ABOVE HIS STATION and BEFORE HIS TIME, but I wanted to just do this little post as I have had a couple of queries about the order that the Cornelius Quaint Chronicles run in of late, so I wanted to share this.

This is the reference list that I use when I write the books, mostly because I’m crap at remembering stuff, but also because it helps me to map out the series.

SO here you go:

  1. Oh, and I should probably say that it doesn’t matter when you read The Quaint Christmas or The Enthusiastic Amateur as they’re not connected to the overall arc. DC!
