Presenting, Speaking etc.


As you might have gathered, I don’t mind the sound of my own voice! 🙂  So I do the after-dinner circuit, get on radio whenever I can, give talks to writers groups and conferences, and have worked as a celebrity speaker on P&O’s cruise ship, Arcadia.  I’ve hosted the Romantic Novelists’ Association’s RoNas – the annual awards for the best in Romantic Fiction – for the last eight years, and have presented many events at the Guildford, Belfast, Buckingham and Whitstable book festivals and been a regular at ChipLitFest at Chipping Norton since its inception.

As an interviewer/chair, I have presented panels and been “in conversation with” dozens of authors and personalities including:
