January - February 2016
I was delighted to be invited on to the Talk Solent discussion
programme on That's Solent. It was the first time I had been on the TV
and it was a fun experience. Here I am with fellow guest, James Marsh
and presenter, Shan Robins. I was later asked to come on again and I
spent some time helping out behind the scenes at the station.
Unexpectedly, I found myself on BBC Radio Solent's Julian Clegg Show,
when the show was talking about Eastleigh. I emailed Julian to tell him I
had written Eastleigh Then and Now and found myself invited on-air. It
was the first time I had been on his show. He is a lovely man to talk to
and I was able to give listeners a little of the town's history. Thanks,
I am very pleased to have been invited to become the Author Coach at Christine Kloser Publishing in the USA. Exciting times ahead!
