BBC Radio Solent Called

BBC Radio Solent called today to ask me if I would be happy to be featured as one of ‘Julian’s People’ to follow throughout 2009. Of course I jumped at the chance. Julian Clegg presents a very lively radio programme from 6.30am to 9.30am every weekday.

“It may be Julian and the team of reporters, travel, weather and sport presenters behind the mic, but it's 'Julian's People' who really make BBC Radio Solent's breakfast show the South's favourite.

Copy edits, Cornwall and Newcastle

I have just finished going through the copy-edit proofs for DEAD MAN'S WHARF, the new DI Andy Horton marine mystery crime novel due to be published in hardback on 29 April 2009. There weren't any revisions to the manuscript thank goodness and only a few small alterations but this is a task that I am not overly fond of. Why?

A busy year ahead

2009 promises to be a busy year for me with seven of my books being published and some talks and events already lined up. But first, as it is the New Year, it's a good time to reflect on what has gone before and then to set objectives and look forward to events in 2009. So here goes:

In Cold Daylight, my thriller featuring Adam Greene, reached the top ten shortlist for the World Book Day Prize 2008 and came sixth in an on line… Continue
