November 2017: Latest news – A busy time coming up! Not only have I contributed to the anthology A Different Kind of Kent by the Writers of Whitstable to be published on 1st December, but my first novel, From This Day Forward will be published very soon. For details of dates of publication, and how to order, please look at the My Books page of this site.
Check out details for the Whitstable Literary Festival in May 2017. I will be volunteering this year, rather than hosting a talk or walk, but still good to get close to all those books! Please note the venue change from The Horsebridge to The Castle.
Be My Guest, a 30-part serial, will be published in The People’s Friend between September 2016 and January 2017.
Thank you to everyone who came on my walk relating to my book, Whitstable Through Time, as part of the Whitstable Biennale (June 2016). We were five minutes ahead of the thunderstorm – always a good thing!
January 2016: Read my serial, Community Spirit, over the next 8 weeks in The People’s Friend. Will Nate save the Mucklebury Arms? Will Jeannie recover from the loss of her business? Find out soon.
