Covid-19 Tribulations

Utterly Dredged – the 9th book in the Utterly Crime Series – is now published and available to buy – but the ‘book launch’ is on hold. I thought, quite reasonably, that an early spring or Easter release date for Utterly Dredged, the 9th book in the Utterly Crime Series, would be a great idea. I had planned a book … Read More

Bury Literature Festival – Negotiated

Held in one of Bury St Edmund’s most impressive buildings, the Unitarian Meeting House in Churchgate Street, it was a pleasure to attend and indeed feature in the Literature Festival on the 27th October 2019. It was a first for me to be talking  with a backdrop of a sweeping wooden staircase circling up to a substantial wooden pulpit! It … Read More

I’m delighted to be taking part in the Bury St Edmunds Literature Festival when it returns to the town this October with a whole host of exciting events, talks and discussions on literature, publishing and the like.

It features over 500 works by established and … Read More

Another novel from the Utterly Crime Series joins the ‘Suffolk Loves’ shelf.

Imagine how surprised and pleased I was when I spent a December Friday in the Woodbridge Library and while there spotted my crime novel – Utterly Dusted – amongst the crime novels on the library ‘Suffolk Loves’ shelf. I had to take a quick photo. Unfortunately the snowflake design on the seasonal cover tends to disguise the ‘Suffolk Loves’ sticker. … Read More

Utterly Roasted

The 8th novel in the Utterly Crime series is now published and available in paperback and ebook.Some of my research before writing this particular book took me to do some, what I’d call high-end event waiting/waitressing. I spent my time at one event back-of-house helping in the kitchen (washing up and plating up) and a second event front-of-house serving canapés … Read More
