Hello, and thank you for visiting my site. I hope that you'll return often and always find something of interest about my world and what inspires me to pick up a pen. (This is a figure of speech, unfortunately. My handwriting is terrible!) Here's what I've been up to recently...

HUB at York Theatre Royal

Forget the Edinburgh Fringe! York Literature Festival has its HUB, an opportunity for local writers of all kinds to shine alongside the main events.

On Monday 20th March, the Promoting Yorkshire Authors group, (some of us are shown above), will be joining York Novelists  to share our experiences of different paths to publication.

We hope that as many other writers as possible will come along to join us and add their own experiences to the mix.

 

York Literature Festival 2017 YW poster photographs

On Wednesday, 29th March, York Writers will present a Showcase of members’ work and I’m looking forward to reading a short story from my Anyone For Murder? collection.

Other contributions will be many and various. (Not all of them met the deadline for the posters!) It will be a very entertaining evening and we hope for a good turn out. Alongside the other books, copies of our new anthology should be on sale. It’s just about ready to go to press, so fingers are firmly crossed at the moment. Watch this space!

Not far from Paris lies the village of Saint-André-la Forêt, where three English schoolgirls disappear without trace during the summer of 1965.

Twenty years later, a stranded traveller stumbles across a skeleton in the nearby forest and ignores local people's warnings to leave well alone. The secrets she uncovers, some dating back to the darkest days of World War 2, are more than enough to put her own life in danger.
