2010 is already shaping up to be a busy year with lots of writing activity, talks and book signings to look forward to. Here is the line up for the first six months of the year as it stands at the moment. There is a new Calendar of Events
page on my official web site and all my events, book signings and publications will be posted there throughout the year, as well as here.
On 27 January I start the year with an interview on BBC Radio Solent. January also sees the launch of a brand new competition aimed at young crime writers in the UK in which I am involved on behalf of the Crime Writers Association. More on this in the next few days.
February 2010 and the new Inspector Andy Horton marine mystery crime novel called Blood on the Sand
will be published. Dead Man’s Wharf
is being published in paperback in the UK in February and in April in the USA. My thriller In For The Kill
is also being published in Turkish.
In March it’s a whirlwind tour of the North East of England on 15 and 16. I will be talking about my crime novels at the following libraries:

CrimeFest is an annual convention which draws top crime novelists, readers, editors, publishers and reviewers from around the world and gives delegates the opportunity to celebrate the genre in an informal atmosphere.
