Having given so many talks and readings at events over the last few years, I thought it was about time I put together a formal page on my website, for anyone who is considering inviting me to speak.

More will follow shortly, as I get round to asking people for them!

I have worked closely with Debbie Young, and have observed her as a short story writer and performer, an events organiser, a chairperson of a writers’ group, a short story competition judge and a speaker on self-publishing. Debbie’s intellect and knowledge of her subject, combined with her organisational skill, tact and personal warmth, make her a joy to work with. In areas not generally noted for discipline and organisational skills, Debbie is the ultimate professional.
