Titanic

A couple of weeks ago I finished reading an interesting book about J. Bruce Ismay entitled "How to Survive the Titanic or the Sinking of J. Bruce Ismay by Frances Wilson.  Ismay's family owned the White Star Shipping Line and he became the Chairman of the company after the death of his father in 1899.
 
Today sees the opening of an exhibition at Liverpool's Maritime Museum called Titanic and Liverpool: The untold story, which will look at the city's role in Titanic's story.

UK's World Book Day - a celebration of reading and books

Yes, it's today and it's aimed at encouraging children to read.  I've loved reading books ever since I was a child.  I remember reading 1-2 books a week and couldn't get enough of Enid Blyton's Famous Five and Secret Seven.  I've still got some of the paperbacks at home.  I won't part with them!
 
As I got older and my interest developed in history and historical fiction, I then discovered Jean Plaidy.  At school in my English Lit classes I read, amongst other things: Animal Farm, Pride and Prejudice and one of my favourites, The Picture of Dorian Gray - scary!

Press Release

Hello everyone,
 
I'm pleased to advise that a copy of the Press Release for my book which has been issued by my publisher is available under News and Events.
 
Have a good week!
 

Greetings!

Winter is well and truly here!  Last weekend at my house in the French Alps the temperature plunged to -15C (5F).  The sun made an appearance and the scenery was fantastic, but it didn't get above -13C (8.6F) throughout the day.  I only ventured out to bring in more logs for the fire.
 
I’ve been busy updating my marketing plan for the Thornhill Secret and I am pleased to report that the publisher is working on a Press Release.  As soon as it is available I'll post it on the News and Events page.

Happy New Year!

Hello and welcome to my website!  If this is your first visit, thank you for your interest.
 
I've been busy promoting theThornhill Secret.  It's out there folks and available through your local bookseller or on-line retailer.  It's even available as an e-book (for the technical wizards amongst you!)
 
I hope you enjoy reading my book as much as I have enjoyed writing it.
 
2012 is going to be a busy year for me not only promoting the new book, but also I've started my research and preliminary outline for my next novel.
