I absolutely LOVE speaking about my book and all aspects of writing. Here I am with crime-thriller authors Elly Griffiths and Simon Toyne at a literary panel for Sussex’s Hurst Festival

If you’d like me to come and talk to your reading group or at any sort of literary event, please do say hello via the form on my contact page.


Watch me here

Above, you can watch a video of me (in full 1960s gear!) reading a couple of extracts from the novel at my book launch for The Mysterious Affair at Castaway House.

Beach Hut Writers

I’m also one of Beach Hut Writers, all Brighton and Hove-based published authors. In the past year, we’ve appeared at the Brighton Fringe Festival, the Queens Park Picnic, and the Together The People festival, discussing our fiction and signing books.


Beach Hut Writers have also recently set up the Beach Hut Writing Academy, offering Brighton & Hove-based courses in different aspects of writing. You can find out more here.

Rattle Tales

I’m also a member of Rattle Tales, a live fiction night based in Brighton. We appeared at the Green Man Festival in 2013, and we also set up the inaugural Brighton Prize for short stories in 2014. In 2015 the prize was judged by best-selling author Peter James.

The Rattle Tales anthologies publish the stories read at their events. You can read a few of my short stories and flash fiction in each volume, and buy them here.
