From the author: Want to me see a reading while blending into the wall?

Hello lovelies,

You may already have seen this through my social media, but I will be doing a short reading of A Stranger's Guide as part of the Big Book Weekend.

The wonderful folk at Cymerafest got me the reading as I would have been doing a Brave New Words reading for them if the festival had been able to go ahead but, alas, the Plague Times arrived as this is what we've got instead. 

The programme is at


and my reading is at 1pm on Friday 8th May!

I'm so pleased to be able to share this (even if I do blend in with the wall somewhat, the joys of Zoom) and may will be in the chat to answer questions should anyone have these.
