Fun Palaces meet-the-author cover

A lovely get-together of wordy folk at Adlington Library, near Chorley, as part of the national Fun Palaces weekend.

Grab the chance to say hello and hear me talk about my contribution to the short story anthology Lancashire Stories, as well as the centenary of thriller writer Desmond Bagley and my own ‘tribute’ novel Outback.

Expect lively conversation, a Q&A and maybe a sneaky peek at the paperback edition of the book, which won’t be available in the wild until the end of October. (But if anybody asks, I didn’t tell you that…)

Meet the author – come and say hello at this event, part of Blackpool’s prestigious WordFest literary festival.

I’ll be at the Winter Gardens from 5.30pm but if you see me hanging around other parts of the festival, don’t be shy. I’m always happy to chat to readers in a formal or informal setting.
