Last year, while attending the annual Swanwick Writer’s Summer School, I set a competition. Three of my novels are linked to a fictitious Dorset village which I call Hampton Warlock. The puzzle was to determine how I came up with the name Hampton Warlock. The prize was a copy of my novel, King’s Priory. Only one person came to me with the correct answer, a lady from the United States. I was highly impressed that someone living on the opposite side of the pond could be the only person to work out the answer. No more prizes, but can you work out the origin on the name?
