Wednesday September 14th 2016 Public talk

Okay people, I am giving a talk. There were times when these were common place, usually taking place in libraries all around the country. Alas libraries now haven't the staff to plan and organise these types of events, nor the spare funds to provide refreshments etc, so this request came out of the blue. The organiser found me on my website and the group is very local, called Llandudno and District Writing Group and the talk called 'Motivation' is this Wed 14th September from 2 - 4 pm in the small downstairs' room in the building that also houses the library in Llandudno. As the room is not large, space is at a premium but if you would really like to be there please send me an e-mail or a message on Facebook and I will see what I can do. It would be nice to connect with my loyal North Wales fans. I just wish I could see more of you as I once used to.

24th March 2016

Today 'Pack Up Your Troubles is released. Harking back to my family again, this is written in memory of an aunt I never knew, but knew of and for all women who suffered in a similar way. Pre WW2 a man abusing his wife was not committing a crime. It was listed as a 'domestic' and usually not even investigated. There were no hostels where women could seek protection, nor much sympathy for any woman running out on her man. Read one woman's struggle to survive and strive for any shred of happiness for her and her children. Harrowing in parts. Public Warning Notice - you might have to read this with a pack of tissues to hand.

November 19th 2015

Another best-selling family drama from the author of  If You Were the Only Girl and A Strong Hand to Hold. 

Celia Mulligan is in love with farm hand Andy McCadden, but when Andy asks her to marry him and she accepts, her father is furious – no daughter of his will marry a mere hireling. Celia elopes with Andy and they make their way by ship to England. While on board, Celia meets a demure young woman called Annabel who tells her in confidence that a friend of her father forced himself upon her and she has since fallen pregnant.
Annabel plans to throw herself on her brother’s mercy and asks Celia if she will accompany her to Birmingham as her ladies maid. Without a job and with nothing to offer her, Andy encourages Celia to accept – he can find employment for himself and save for their future. But neither of them can foresee the events that will follow, and soon Celia will be forced to choose between the man she loves, and the love of a vulnerable child…
