I share interview links here. I also carry out interviews for Chandler’s Ford Today so do please check out my page there. I am always open to being quizzed about my writing!

I was delighted to take part in Wendy H. Jones’ podcast, The Writing and Marketing Show. I was thrilled to be able to talk about flash fiction. Do check out the episode here.

It was a real pleasure to talk to Patricia M Osborne, author of the House of Grace. I met Patricia at the Swanwick Writers’ Summer School. We are both huge fans of it!

Patricia also took part in my What Books Mean to Me Series on Chandler’s Ford Today (as did Wendy H Jones, Val Penny, and Jennifer C. Wilson. It is always fascinating to listen or read what other writers have to say about the writing process and/or books!).

Separately, I have also taken part in Patricia’s 100 Word Story Challenge a couple of times. Well, if that wasn’t a challenge with my name on it, I don’t know what is!

It can feel odd (in a good way) when I am the one being questioned.

Jacci Gooding of  A Collection of Unsettling Short Stories (and they are too – do check them out) interviewed me a couple of years back.

Thanks also to Jennifer C. Wilson. Jennifer, Val, and Patricia have one other thing in common with me – we all adore the Swanwick Writers’ Summer School and it is where we met.

I’ve interviewed Jennifer C Wilson for Chandler’s Ford Today, also as part of my What Books Mean to Me series but also, previously, on her Kindred Spirits series. If you love historical fiction and ghost stories, do check them out.

I was also delighted to be on Jennifer’s own blog spot..
