News & Events

UK Newsletters

In the UK publishers used to produce a Newsletter to coincide with each new book, telling readers a little about it. Everything is digital now, but readers can sign up for occasional news by sending email details to: They run a Facebook page for me to sneer at, but John likes it, so he has linked my website to it if you enjoy such stuff.

Events Programme 2018 (more events are being arranged)

Note: I can now only undertake events where the travel is suitable and expected numbers are good. I’m sorry but events may be cancelled if there is not sufficient interest beforehand.

Books are usually available for sale and I will happily sign new ones but please be considerate about older editions. (My handwriting tells its own story…) It is also polite to remember that our hosts at the venue are holding events in order to sell new stock.

Thursday 5 April – Official UK hardback publication of Pandora’s Boy

Friday 25 May – I’m afraid Gateshead Library event was cancelled due to small numbers

Thursday 4 October – Official UK paperback publication of Pandora’s Boy

Saturday 6 October – Fishbourne Roman Palace, 2.30 Q & A event, followed by signing (and I believe there may be afternoon tea)

Saturday 20 October – 6.00 Harrogate Literary Festival, Old Crown Hotel Harrogate

19 November and 3 December – Andante Travel Lindsey Davis tours in Rome: these are new ventures, following the success of being a Guest Lecturer on some of Andante’s Naples tours. Assisted by a professional archaeologist, we shall visit some sites from the Falco and Albia series and Master and God; throughout the trip I shall be with the group. I’ll discuss using ancient Rome in my books, while I shall personally guide one of the sites and give a formal talk, probably in the British School in Rome. For details and booking see the Andante website. (NB the first tour sold out in five days!)

Events Programme 2019 (more events are being arranged)
