NEWS & EVENTS
Like most authors, I'm so happy sitting at my desk playing with my imaginary friends in my novels, I don't really have time to worry about the fact that it's quite a solitary occupation. But whenever I get the chance to go out and about meeting other writers, readers, and anyone interested in books or writing, it's a treat.
I really enjoy giving talks about writing to groups like the WI, U3A, Rotary and Lions clubs, etc - and of course to writing or reading groups and libraries, in the areas around my Chelmsford and Torquay homes. Please get in touch with me through the Contact page if you're interested in booking a talk, book signing or other event.
I also enjoy talking on radio or giving interviews to newspapers, magazines and blogs, and have had lots of support in this way through the local Essex and Devon media.
On 7 March 2022, I was honoured to attend the Romantic Novelists Association awards evening as a shortlisted author for my book 'Winter at Cliff's End Cottage'. And stunned and thrilled to be announced as the winner of the Christmas and Winter Seasonal Novel of the year.
On 17 February 2022 I took part in a live show as a guest, on BBC Radio Devon, and on 13 December 2021 I was chatting on the radio to Tony Fisher at BBC Radio Essex. This has been a regular highlight for me throughout my career.
Talking to a local book group in November 2021, on the occasion of their twenty-year anniversary, and helping them to celebrate.
