Hello, I’m Back!

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!

    Dear Peter

    Have now found the reference to your health and am pleased you are now on the road to recovery.

    For myself I have had a new right knee which was painful at first but have come through very well now.

    All good wishes


    1. Dear Susan, I’m sure you must be the former Susan McKnight. It is a pleasure to hear from you again after all these years! My health is a lot better, thanks. I had some abdominal cancer, but the surgery and chemotherapy have got it to the point where I am back to full strength and intending to outlive it if it comes back! I haven’t seen David Nicolson for a long time. Please feel free to invite him to the launch too, which is indeed on 5 December 2017 in Middle Temple. I’ve invited David Ambrose, as we are in regular touch and he is kind enough to read and review some of my writing. But he lives in France, has wife hasn’t been well, so I doubt we will see him. But he may just turn up. I look forward very much to seeing you again. Warm regards, Peter
