I am mainly in Thailand working on a novel. Fresh investigations continue to land on my desk. I've written several features in the UK national press recently, including The Sun and the Mail on Sunday. There is also a BBC feature appearing very soon. Click here to be linked to the newspaper pieces.

The best way to keep up with me is on twitter @richardhoskins and my blog above. I've been working on a lot of police cases and have just written a feature piece in The Sun newspaper on Islamic exorcisms. Next month I head back to Asia to complete the research for a book I'm writing on the same topic.

Those who follow me on Twitter will know that as soon as the Hatton Garden heist was discovered I tweeted that it bore an uncanny resemblance to the plot of Michael Connelly's book The Black Echo. A few days later the media picked up on my theory, running articles in national newspapers and on television. I'll post two or three of the links here:

There's an exciting development which will be announced soon. Watch this space!



Child witches are back in the news, with the Metropolitan police reporting 27 new cases in the capital this past year. I have been giving interviews to newspapers, tv and radio on the subject. Some fresh investigations have also landed on my desk. Alongside that I have been teaching English, but am about to sharpen my quill and start the new novel from my Norfolk base.



I have conducted an interview live on Sky News, other radio interviews and authored a feature in The Mail on Sunday. I am currently taking a short break in Malaysia with a view to some research for my next novel.
