About Me

My photo
Hull is the city of my birth, but I have lived in the Beverley area for the past 20 years. I have a family in Hull and a family in Australia. Travelling to shores, both near and far, is often on my agenda. What keeps me young at heart? My grandchildren and my zest for life.

Caught in the Act

Penny Grubb and I did  a joint book signing at W H Smith in Prospect  Centre, Hull.

Penny, a well known local writer of crime, has just published her third novel in the Annie Raymond private investigator series, "The Jawbone Gang" published by Robert Hale.

We had two unexpected visitors.
