The T shirts are lovely qualify, exclusive, and cost €20 to buy direct from me, €15 if you order at least one signed paperback at the same time. But you can WIN a Free T- shirt with this simple competition.

I mentioned recently that Ted 7 will feature a character who has been in an earlier book. All you have to do is email me your suggestion, not a guess of who it is, but of who you would like to see return, and why. Please email your answer so no one sees it and steals your idea to tottielimejuice@gmail.com

Please put ‘Ted Tee’ in the subject line of your emails. Thank you.

Entries close at midnight GMT on 13 February 2017 and the winner will be announced on Valentine’s Day, 14th February.

If I like any of the suggestions enough, even if they don’t win, I might use the idea in future books in the series and mention you in the acknowledgements in the book. Don’t be bashful about having a go. I will read each and every answer submitted.

Here’s what the T shirts look like without my ugly mug sticking out of them.

Ted on tour – Time for a change – Time for Ted

Ted’s been getting about a bit of late. He featured recently on this blog https://seumasgallacher.com/2017/02/04/elementary-my-dear-april-taylor/

And he’s going to be appearing at an online international Mystery and Thriller week on Facebook, starting on 11th February 2017. He’ll be helping me to host a slot there on Valentine’s Day from 2-3pm GMT. Why not come along and show your support?

When I’m Old and Grey – DI Ted Darling Book III



It’s here! The moment fans of DI Ted Darling have been waiting for! Book III in the series, When I’m Old and Grey, is out today, 1 October 2015, and available at a special offer price of just £1.99/$1.99, just for the first few days.

Here’s what the book blur says: ‘DI Ted Darling doesn’t like coincidences. There are too many for comfort surrounding his latest case. They’re spilling over into his private life, too, when some toxic family secrets are uncovered.

A serial killer appears to be targeting vulnerable elderly people in care homes and despatching them in the most cynical way. Ted and his team are struggling to get a lead on who the killer really is.

It doesn’t help that his newest team member is adding to his problems, rather than helping him to solve them.

Then an unexpected phone call brings devastating news for Ted and his long-term partner, Trevor …’

The DI Ted Darling books are based in Stockport, the town where I grew up.

You can get it from Amazon for Kindle and in paperback.

And the good news in I’ve just started writing DI Ted Darling Book IV!
