Saturday 23 January, 20.00hrs UK time
Looking forward to joining fellow-author Ben Kane for a live chat on Zoom! Ben is a great storyteller who writes books set both in Roman times and in the 12th century.  This will be part of his series of informal interviews with historical fictioneers called “Blades and Banter”. He assures me that swords aren’t obligatory, but just in case, I shall come equipped with one of Ruso’s scalpels.

Tickets are £7.50 and the timing means that friends across the Atlantic will be able to join us without being seen in their pyjamas. Here’s the link to Eventbrite for more details.

CHANGE OF DATE!

Forget March! This is now:

SATURDAY 8 MAY 10am UK time:
“Imagining the Past”.

I’ll be Zooming across to Rugby Archaeological Society along with fellow-scribe Christine Hancock, whose novels tell the story of Byrhtnoth, the 10th century warrior who led his people against the Vikings. We’ll be talking about the overlap between archaeology and fiction, and full details will be here as soon as I have them.
