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...

Promoting Yorkshire Authors Christmas event

The weather outside Harrogate Library was horrible, but inside all was warm and cosy. Fellow PYA members Neeley Wickes, Marla Skidmore, John Jackson, Edwin Rydberg, Brian Pentelow, Darren Walker and I set out our stalls and looked forward to a few hours of discussing our books with the public and – eternally optimistic – going home at the end with empty bags. It didn’t quite work out like that, but I sold a fair few of mine and met some very interesting people.

I’m indebted to John Jackson for this wonderful collage of the PYA members selling their books today.

The presence of the Friends of Harrogate Library with their pop-up cafe (and good selection of delicious cake!) was very welcome and I was fascinated by the skills of the ladies from Harrogate Embroiderers’ Guild, who were displaying their work and offering the opportunity to have a go. Thanks are also due to the talented gentleman who played seasonal music for us throughout the event. Sorry I neglected to get his name.
