I enjoy talking about my books to groups of readers — at literary festivals, in libraries, or for book groups. Since lockdown these have been on zoom, so I can join a group wherever it meets. I’d be happy to hear from you if you would like me to talk to a group you are connected with.

Coming from September 2021:
In this new series of on-line interviews I will be introducing writers who have uncovered hidden family stories or written a biography of a creative life. How they each came to write their books is almost as interesting as the books themselves.
Hosted by the National Women’s Register but open to anyone, free.
Thursdays @ 7pm – book at https://nwr.org.uk

And look what someone just found… If you look really carefully (bottom right corner) you’ll see that National Book Tokens have included my novel Somewhere More Simple in their photo of popular books you might want to buy !
