Hello and welcome to my website.
So, York Literature Festival is over for another year and it's back to normal - whatever that is. In my case that means preparing my third novel for publication in the autumn and thinking about writing a fourth. I also have some trips away planned over the summer so my diary is pretty much fleshed out for the next few months. And as much as I've enjoyed keeping you up to date with affairs on a daily basis recently, I'm going to have to take a step back and focus on my next couple of books.
This week I'm off to Russia to visit Moscow and St Petersburg and to look at a bit of art. While I'm away, I'm leaving you with my new short story, JOURNEY BY RAIL. You'll find it on my Writing Life page.
I've also been running a weekly blog about the European Referendum. With the vote looming, I've posted my final thoughts on Euro Talk.
My Spring Tour of the region's bookshops has come to an end and Saturdays have once more become my own. I've had some thoughts about my experiences and I'll be setting them out soon. In the meanwhile, if you want to keep up to date with whatever else is going on, please check out my Events page.
And, as ever, I wish you happy reading and writing.
