It is plain to see that Yvonne Mason knows crime. A graduate in Criminal Justice and a licensed bounty hunter, you can tell all the research that went into writing this book. She takes the infamous events of Whitechapel in 1888 and puts a interesting spin on the legend of Jack the Ripper. This book reads like one of those movies I used to watch as a kid from International Pictures or even the old Hammer Films of the ’60’s. Kudos to Yvonne for writing a story with well thought out characters and mixing in real-life historical references to make this novel a treat. The ending has just enough mystery to keep you guessing long after you finished it.

The Mad Hatter took over four years to complete. It was very important that the history of 1888 in Whitechapel be correct. I even purchased maps of Whitechapel in that time period. I purchased books on clothing, furniture,mercury poisoning, tanning, hats, money, the hat factory that was on the Thames, bridges and behavior- as well as many other details. I download photos of buildings of that time period, and I also went back to the research I had done when I was in College on Jack the Ripper. I basically drove myself nuts to make sure that the setting was as it should be for 1888 in the East End of London. Apparently it paid off. This reviewer understood what I was trying to do.
It was totally worth all of the rewrites the sleepless nights and the hair pulling to get it right.

The Mad Hatter IS OUT!!!!!!!

http://www.lulu.com/shop/yvonne-mason/the-mad-hatter/paperback/product-22397664.htmlThe Mad Hatter

For those of you who have been waiting for soooo long for this little tale of suspense, horror and all around mayhem it is now available on Lulu. In about six weeks it will be up on Amazon in print and in a couple of days it will be available for download on Kindle and Nook. I know I have taken my time and teased all of you unmerciful about this little ditty. But you know how that goes, greatness takes time to cook.
For those if you who are true crime history buffs it does have an interesting storyline which includes the victims of the Ripper. I know you all are saying “Say it ain’t so!” But indeed it is. No, it is not the same old tired storyline. If you are a reader of my books, you know I would never go there. That is just not my nature. You see, for those of you who have never read my work, the voices in my head have their own minds. When I write I have to allow them to tell the story or else they drive me completely insane. Think Edgar Allen Poe. No I am not going to cut off my ear, that was Van Gough, he was an artist.
Anyway back to The Mad Hatter. This little book was a year or better in the making. Why? You might ask. Well, it is like this, research takes a minute and when I write even fiction, it has to be believable. As someone once said, I don’t want you to just read the story, I want you to be in the story. Besides that, one has to know how hides are tanned, even those of a different nature.
So with that in mind, pull up a chair, wrap yourself in your most comfortable clothes, put your feet up with a liquid refreshment and take a journey with me and the Hatter. I promise you will never look at hats the same way again. Heck you might not even look at humans the same way again.
Go back in time with me to the year 1888 the place is Whitechapel.
Oh and one more thing, if someone asks you if you like hats, walk away, far away quickly.
