The Seventh Train: Official Book Launch

On Wednesday 22nd May 2019, my second novel has its official book launch! I'm back at my old shop in Waterstones, Bury St Edmunds, where I spent several years as a humble bookseller - shelving, carrying, recommending books, and being very nice to customers (always best to be nice!). This time I'll be talking up my own writing, and hoping that customers will be nice to me. From 6pm until 8pm there will be wine, nibbles, talking, questions (hopefully), answers (even more hopefully), and books, of course. If you're anywhere near Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk, why not come along and help to celebrate some brand new contemporary fiction and support an author at the same time? I'll even sign any books that you buy. The shop tills will be open so there will be plenty of other books to buy too. Once a bookseller...

HOT NEWS!!

London Shows Announced!

The good folk at the INK Festival in Suffolk have now added my short play, Invisible Irene to the London leg of the 'Feast from the East' tour. 
Starring Ann Bryson and directed by Dugald Bruce Lockhart, Invisible Irene was included on the East Anglian tour, and now it will be performed at all the London dates too. It was added to the bill by popular demand after the play's debut at this year's INK Festival in Halesworth, Suffolk. (Always the best way to be added to anything!) 

Booking info and details of all the shows at the Tristan Bates Theatre, Covent Garden can be found on their website by clicking this link: www.tristanbatestheatre.co.uk/whats-on/feast-from-the-east
