What Am I Up To?
Welcome to the page where I tell the world about future plans and past happenings. Having just emerged from a quiet patch dominated by that pesky nuisance, Real Life, I’m back at work writing. “Mirabile dictu”, as the Romans would have said, (means “amazing”, probably with a touch of “about time”!) As well as continuing to add to my collection of mystery short stories which I’ll be publishing as an e-book, I’m resuming work on the fifth Aurelia mystery, provisionally titled LABYRINTH OF LIES. This takes Aurelia down to London for her brother’s wedding, which of course proceeds without a hitch and they all have a wonderful time. (Who am I kidding?)
Dates for your Diary
May 17-20: CrimeFest, Bristol.
The UK’s premier international crime festival goes from strength to strength, yet has never lost its friendly atmosphere. I’ll be there as usual. Information about CrimeFest 2018 from: www.crimefest.com where you can sign up for their regular emailed newsletter to keep you up-to-date.
June 3-7: Eboracum Roman Festival. A wonderful celebration of Ancient Roman life and times, held in York, one of the leading cities of Roman Britain. I’ll be strutting my stuff, that is signing and selling books, and I’ll be in Roman costume, though the books won’t be on Roman scrolls!
July 20-23: Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival, Harrogate.
There’s always something for everyone in this elegant Yorkshire town, including plenty of Old Peculier (in case you didn’t know, that’s a good Yorkshire beer, not a comment on the convention.)
August 17-19: St. Hilda’s Mystery and Crime Conference, Oxford.
In the very special ambience of an Oxford College, writers from all aspects of crime and mystery give talks exploring a theme. This year it’s “Politics and Crime.”
