My diary is hotting up with so much work in the pipeline. I've been asked, and submitted, a ghost story for Dr. Karl Bell's Portsmouth Dark City project. I'm offering a part of my novel, Evil Never Dies, to be read by actors at the Debug My Script event at the Portsmouth Hub event on Thursday 31st March. I'm running two Drabble Workshops for Hampshire County Council's Shakespeare festival at Fareham library on the 5th of April and Waterlooville library on the 7th of April.

The Maxilla are a peaceful clan but when rumours of dark magic arrive once again, can they survive the latest threat from, Myracadonis, the shaman?
