Murder at the Pelican Club - A Brand New Murder Mystery Play

In August I was commissioned to write a murder mystery play. More used to penning crime novels this is my first serious play and I thoroughly enjoyed writing it. It began with an e mail in August asking writers for submissions for a new murder mystery play to be performed by professional actors and actresses in the autumn. Deadlines were extremely tight. I needed to know more.

What kind of play were they looking for? Was it to be a serious play… Continue

I'm pining for the Frankfurt Book Fair

I never thought I’d say it but I’m pining for the Frankfurt Book Fair. Here's a photo of me at the 2007 Frankfurt Book Fair. It is the first time in four years that I won’t be going. I didn’t think I would miss the experience especially after last year when the German train drivers decided to go on strike. We were staying in a lovely hotel in Bad Nauheim, (where we always stay because it overlooks the most fantastic park) but this meant we had… Continue

Play the Publishing Quiz and win a Free book

The Society of Authors meeting in London on Monday was fascinating for many reasons: the venue, the characters in the audience, the panel and what they said. I’ve picked out some quotes from the panel of experts (a publisher, an agent and a book wholesaler) and thought I’d let you decide who said what with the offer of a FREE signed edition of one of my novels if you guess correctly. But first a little more about the event.

The Conway Hall,… Continue

London Calling

I’m off to the Society of Authors AGM in London today. I’ve been a member for almost ten years and although I don’t get to attend every meeting or function I have used the society’s extremely helpful service on publishing copyright and contracts. The SOA has (as its web site declares) been serving the interests of professional writers for more than a century, and has more than 8,500 members writing in all areas of the profession. These include novelists, textbook writers, ghost writers,… Continue

A very successful event

The Women Into Business conference went really well. Seventy women turned up across all age ranges some who were already running businesses and others who were about to start, or were thinking of running their own business. It was a very inspiring morning with speakers including yours truly. I was delighted to talk to so many of the women there and pass on any tips and advice about marketing and building a business. And I was thrilled that so many… Continue

Delivering an inspiring speech

I'm preparing for a talk I am giving tomorrow at a Women Into Business conference in the UK. I am the keynote speaker so I need to make sure that I kick-start the conference on the right note. There are going to be ninety women there and all keen to start, or who are thinking about starting, their own business. Of course there are people around who think that now is not a good time to be doing so, but I started my own marketing and training company in the UK in 1992 three days before Black… Continue
