Have you always wanted to write a novel but don’t quite know where to start? Or you’ve launched in a frenzy of creative energy then ground to a halt? Don’t let another year go by. I’m going to be running three courses this year, in collaboration with Newcastle City Library, Newcastle upon Tyne.The courses run for four weeks on Thursday evenings 5-7pm where you will join a small group of other hopeful novelists in fun, interactive and informative sessions.

Get That Novel Started 2, 9, 16, 23 March 2017 £65
Get That Novel Finished 1, 8, 15, 22 June 2017 £65
Get That Novel Published 5, 12, 19 October 2017 and 2 November 2017

You can pick and choose which of the courses you do – one or all of them! – but you will get the most out of the series if you start at the beginning.

Jazz Files on tour

I’m going on tour with The Jazz Files! But this time I don’t have to worry about forgetting my underwear (which friends will know I’m notorious for!) It’s a blog tour, starting today on Whispering Stories. The rest of the tour is listed below. I do hope to bump into some of you on my travels :)
