‘You obviously love to write and talk’. I took that as a compliment when someone said it to me the other evening after a talk I’d given on my life as a diplomat and my novel ‘Deadly Diplomacy‘, because I’ve been told at previous functions that I am one of the few authors they’ve met who loves to give talks and meet readers. And I do. What could be better than meeting someone who has paid for, and read, something I’ve slogged over for days, months, or even years! And if they tell me they enjoyed Deadly Diplomacy, or they couldn’t put it down, or they were up until 3am finishing it, I’m over the moon. Job done! So, do ask, (via my contents page) if you would like me to talk to your book group, or your library, or any other event. I’m based in York and don’t require any fees or expenses.
