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.
