Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, my book tour like those of many other authors I know, needed to be cancelled. While this is disappointing, it’s not the end of the world and I’m very grateful to you for taking the time to find me here on my website. Necessity is the mother of invention, as they say, and in times like these we must adapt to a new way of life. Since the release of Gulliver’s Wife in April, I’ve been doing a lot of online and radio events. My book launch (originally supposed to be held at Better Read than Dead in Newtown) ended up being hosted online via a Facebook Live event through my publisher’s website. It was wonderful to see so many familiar faces, albeit virtually. Thank you for showing up.

I have some other ‘live’ events scheduled for the next couple of months and I’ll be updating this page soon as more are arranged.
