Hello, and many thanks for dropping by. The following pages will give you an idea of my books and current projects, my writing life, and the latest news and events. You can also find me on Facebook (the button is on the top right of the page) so feel free to drop me a line. Happy browsing!
Wednesday, 19th June, 2013 I took advantage of some late afternoon sun this afternoon and went for a walk, reminding me of Emma’s walk among the conifers in the woods behind the college in Maine.
Friday, 7th June, 2013 A cross country dash to BBC Radio Kent this morning for an interview with Matt Cole on dyslexia, schools and life combining both as an author. This is a first for me so driving with everything crossed is a bit of a challenge.
28th May, 2013 Waiting for the electrician to arrive at some unearthly hour of the morning and taking advantage of this quiet interlude to get some editing done on Rope of Sand.
21st May, 2013 Congratulations to authors Rob Chidley and David Alton, who launch their book: Building Bridges: Towards a Peaceful Future in North Korea at the House of Lords this evening. All the best, gentlemen!
17th May, 2013 Happy launch day DEATH BE NOT PROUD!
19th May, 2013 Had a fantastic time at the launch of DEATH BE NOT PROUD at Cobham Hall on Friday. It was good to see people who came last time for the launch of MORTAL FIRE, and great to see new faces this year. Best of all, everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, adding to the warm glow of a happy author as guests cradled their copy or two of my latest book.
Spoiler alert! If you’ve already read DBNP, the significance of me choosing historic Cobham Hall as the venue for the launch might now be clear. All that was missing were a couple of members of a reenactment group stalking the grounds!
15th May, 2013 Getting that slightly nervy, fluttery feeling as the countdown to the launch of DEATH BE NOT PROUD is only a few days away. Yes, I know, I know – DBNP has been on the shelves in the UK for the last few weeks, but I have to have a party to celebrate! After all, it is a team effort to get a book up and running and, thanks to all at LION FICTION, DBNP is looking good.
See you all at Cobham Hall, Kent. Okay – time to find that dress and dig out the iron…
