Longfellow's Next Books

She is now at work on the third and last book in this series which is the completion of the Magdalene's story in a book to be called The Woman Who Knew The All.
At the same time, she is also working on a history of American Thoroughbred Horse Racing told through the lives of nine extraordinary race horses. The working title for this book of nonfiction is Steal A Heart.
All in all, Longfellow's English language books (China Blues, Chasing Women, and the script and celebration of her Musical Comedy, Stinkfoot, co-written with her husband, Vivian Stanshall, frontman for Britain's Bonzo Dog Band) have been translated into: German, Spanish, Swedish, Hebraic, Czech, Icelandic, Dutch, Chinese and French. Poland and Russia are now negotiating for The Secret Magdalene.
Writer on the Move

Her first daughter is Sydney Longfellow and her first grandchild is Sydney's son Kit. She once dreamed up, found, fixed, sailed around the coast of England, and ran a theater and music venue on a Baltic Trader in the city of Bristol. Ki Longfellow is the widow of Vivian Stanshall, the frontman for the Beatle's favorite band, The Bonzo Dog Band. They were married for 18 years and have a daughter named Silky named after Longfellow's favorite race horse: Silky Sullivan. Silky has two sons: Ty Vivian, now five and Tobe Ki, one year old.
