Hawkesbury Upton Literary Festival – Books Tent, Hawkesbury Village Show, Saturday 31 August 2019

I will be joining Hawkesbury Upton Literary Festival founder, Debbie Young, and other authors in our book tent at the Hawkesbury Village Show – why not come and say hallo? And, with my husband Gerard, I’ll also be judging the carnival entrants. The Show is always a great family day out, with craft stalls, fairground rides, archery, live music, and much more!

I will be reading from the new Dan Foster Mystery, Death Makes No Distinction, at the inaugural meeting of Noir at the Bar in Bath. Organised by author Valerie Dickinson, it will be “a relaxed evening in a local pub where crime writers – established, emerging and just beginning – can read from their work. So if you write, dream of writing or just love a good crime story, come along and join us.” For details see Noir at the Bar, Bath on Facebook.
