Welcome to my website. If you haven’t read any of my books yet, I hope you enjoy them. There’s information here about my novels and stories, with extracts from reviews and readers’ responses.

My blog reflects on people and places I encounter while travelling with my books. I’m currently featuring If you can walk, you can dance, which won a Commonwealth Writers Prize for the best book in the Africa region, and has been nominated for the Bangalore Literature Festival Book Prize in India.

NEXT EVENT: If you’re within reach of London,  join us for a discussion of the book at the Centre for African Studies, SOAS (School of Oriental & African Studies), Russell Square – Tues 14th November, 7 – 9 pm – with live mbira music.
Also at Blackheath Library, Tues 31st October, 6.30pm

My latest novel, Uncertain Light, was short-listed for two international awards – the UK based Rubery Book Awards, and the US based Indie Book Awards – and Highly Commended for the Independent Author of the Year Award. I have been talking about it to groups across the UK – see Events for details of coming talks.
