Smugglers in Rye!

20th January 2014

Mary Thomas:

Hello Stephen
Thank you for getting in touch. I hope you will enjoy my novel! It's great to hear from people who have a personal connection with characters I have drawn on. I did the research some years ago, which was quite meticulous so I will look up my research notes. I would be interested to hear your side of things. I use another e mail address now so if you would like to reply to me direct on that address, it is [email protected]

Best wishes,

Mary

Thank you for your kind remarks. I've always thought the topic would make a great film/tv series!

Smugglers in Rye!

10th June 2007

Mary Thomas:

For anyone wanting to read a new novel about the Hawkhurst Gang of smugglers, try 'Men of Sorrows' by Mary-Elizabeth Thomas. I spent a year researching this facts which form the basis of this novel of adventure and illicit love on Romney Marsh in the early eighteenth century. It doesn't read like a text book! It's my interpretation of events. Would you rather work a week as a farm labourer for a shilling or earn two shillings for one night's work on the 18th century version of a 'booze-cruise'?
Please read my book. I would be delighted to hear from you!
