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.  
February 2016
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.

It's published!  My latest book,
Crime in the Second World War:
Spivs, Scoundrels, Rogues and Worse has landed on the book
shelves!  The national launch was at Waterstones West Quay,
Southampton and the local launch was at Waterlooville Library.
