Book Launch!

This is the moment I have been waiting for!

My book is OUT and I am now a published author!

To celebrate, I had the most wonderful book launch at The Reader in Calderstones Park, a recently refurbished grade two listed building which is now dedicated to the arts. To read more about this wonderful place, the home of the International Centre for Shared reading, see

I was really lucky to be joined by over 150 guests including family, friends, book clubs, people interested in the arts, and past and present members of writers’ groups that I have been a part of, including some past pupils!

I was very excited to have Luca Veste the brilliant Liverpolitan Crime writer to host, and although there was initial nerves, we hit it off and had a great chat about writing, and we even got our audience laughing.

You can find out more about Luca and his books here:-

Then finally, after the Cava and the Chat, I finally got to sign copies of my book – an experience that will stay with me.
