On Thursday 19 June I had the pleasure of speaking to members of a very friendly and welcoming U3a at Ringwood. Ringwood is an historic market town in Hampshire (England) located on the River Avon, on the western edge of the New Forest. It’s situated between Southampton and Bournemouth.
Apparently Ringwood had a long history of a thriving hand knitting industry. (I knew I should have taken my knitting). It became famous for its "Ringwood" woollen gloves, which were knitted in…Continue

This is in relation to the signature serial killer in the novel. The novel is inspired by Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad, Tam O'Shanter by Robert Burns, Umberto Eco's The Name of the Rose and much more.…Continue

“In the blackness, Hector felt himself falling.”
Then, a kind of real blackness swallowed up Hector and his ongoing series.
Nearly all of the planned Lassiter novels were finished long…Continue
