News & Events

UK Newsletters

In the UK we generally produce a Newsletter to coincide with each new book, telling readers a little about it. The future will be all digital, I’m afraid, so if you want to hear about my work and have not already done so, UK readers can sign up for the digital version by sending an email here.

We are not expecting to issue any more printed Newsletters.

Events Programme 2017

Note: I am now a pensioner with degenerating spine disease, so can only undertake carefully considered events, where the travel is suitable and expected numbers are good. Events may now be cancelled if there is not sufficient interest beforehand.

Books are usually available for sale at events and I will happily sign new ones. Due to encroaching arthritis, I have to limit signing of old editions so please be considerate. It is also polite to remember that our hosts at the venue are holding events in order to sell new stock.
