All Winter I’ve been engaged in an intense, head-down finishing of my standalone novel, provisionally titled The Typewriter, much of it set around the Battle for Berlin in 1945. At last I’ve come up for air and I now have a busy Spring of bookshop events. The very talented David Young, author of the Karin Müller detective series, set in Cold War Germany, and I will be talking about Spies, Seduction, the SS and the Stasi, and the many ways in which Berlin inspires our fiction. There are a number of events to come, but the first are:
7pm, February 21st: The Pitshanger Bookshop,141 Pitshanger Lane, London, W5.
6.30pm, March 1st: Haslemere Bookshop, 2 Causewayside, High Street, Haslemere GU27 2JZ
7pm, March 7th: Warwick Books,24 Market Place, Warwick, Warwickshire CV34 4SL
April 19th: Crawley Wordfest, Crawley Library, Southgate Avenue, Crawley
Do come along – it would be great to meet, talk and of course sign books!
