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,
Julian.

The History Channel has published the film I made with Manna Creatives on the Gordon
Cummins story from my latest book,
Crime in the Second World War, Spivs, Scoundrels,
Rogues and Worse
.  It was a lot of fun to film for part of the World War True Season. Gordon
Cummins was known as the Blackout Ripper.




















I t
ook the plunge and in September
returned to university to study for a
Masters in Publishing at Kingston
University, London.  It is a one-year,
full-time course.  Wish me luck!

As part of National Libraries Week,
I spoke at two of Southampton's
libraries and was interviewed about
my life and work as part of SO:To
Speak, Southampton's Festival of
Words.

I spoke  at Christine Kloser's
Breakthrough Event in York,
Pennsylvania, on thinking and
seeing yourself as an author.

I am absolutely delighted to have
been accepted for membership of
the Crime Writers' Association
(CWA).
