‘Did you hear the one about the author…’ – Come & talk books with us! Tea, cake & chat.


I’m super happy to be appearing at a couple of fabulous literary festivals in the next few weeks, with my good friend, fellow psychological thriller writer, Darren O’Sullivan. I love meeting readers at events and appearing with a friend makes it extra enjoyable. If you’ve been to see Darren and me before you know to expect a LOT (sometimes too much) laughing as well as lots of talk about books and writing. We love the audience to join in our conversation and it’s all very relaxed and informal. Do come if you can.

First up is Deepings Literary Festival in Market Deeping on the 23rd-26th May. There’s a stellar line up including Sophie Hannah who I’m a little bit star-struck to meet! Darren and I are on Friday at 10.30am (fabulous blogger Linda Hill will be keeping us under control) which gives us the rest of the day to eat much cake and catch everybody else’s talk, including Barbara Copperthwaite’s. You can view the programme and book tickets here.

On 9th June we shall be in the beautiful village of Earls Barton, Northamptonshire, at 10.30. We appeared here last year and even if you don’t like books it’s worth the trip for the carrot cake! The festival runs from 7th – 9th June. I can’t wait to catch Sue Moorcroft and Jane Isaac who are always entertaining as well as meeting Cara Hunter who writes such excellent books. You can view the programme and book tickets here.

Pop along and say hello – we’d love to meet you!

  1. Unfortunately, I could only make the Saturday for Market Deeping, so I’ll miss you at that one. Still trying to work out if I can get to the Earls Barton event. There’s a lot going on there for such a small place!

  2. I hope these go well. I’m doing a couple of festivals, too. It’s always a great opportunity to meet some lovely people.

      • Thanks, Louise, It would be lovely to see you. I’m doing a creative writing workshop as part of Thrapston Arts Festival, Friday 7th June, 2.30 in the Library (not that you need that!), then I’m at BuckLitFest on Saturday 15 June, in the Local Author Hub, doing a pop-up talk and generally milling about. I’ll be at Moulton Lit Fest in Novermber doing something tbc. And of course there’s KettFest! I’m in the process of setting up an event in Kettering Library for the Saturday.

Thanks so much for reading!
