Many readers have noticed that this website has been a quiet over the past few months. Sadly, after a lifetime of good health, I have finally had to confront some serious medical problems. These problems involved serious surgery and considerable medication and it has taken me a long time to recover. Fortunately, I am now emerging from the gloom, having been effectively been out of action since November. I am slowly getting back to active duty as an author as the following posts will show, though I am rationing appearances for now, Fortunately, I have been able to continue writing for almost all of the time!
My forthcoming appearances are:
Tuesday 6 June, St, Ives (Cambs) Library, from 2 to 3.30.
Thursday 6 July, Heffers, Cambridge summer crime festival ‘What’s your poison?’ from 6.30 to 8.00.
I do hope to see some of my readers at these events, where I will be talking about the latest Ben Schroeder novel, Calling down the Storm, and my forthcoming collection of humorous short stories in the Rumpole tradition, based in part on my experiences as a judge, and entitled Walden of Bermondsey. I hope to have some FREE copies of the first story, Where There’s Smoke, produced by my publisher, No Exit Press!
