DLH me reading





My dates, so far for 2018. Where I will be happy to sign a book for you.






April 21st- It is Jack the Ripper again. I will be hosting an evening at the cinema Museum, with some of the stars of the film. It is a fascinating subject and will be a great night. Who doesn’t love this mystery. The film’s director, David Wicks, will be there too, to tell us all about his fascinating research and the conclusion he came to, about who the Ripper really was.


MAY 12th: By public demand— another evening at the Cinema Museum, featuring some of the stars from THE BILL TV series. I will be hosting the evening on behalf of Misty Moon Productions, (I appeared in half a dozen episodes, playing different characters). And I will have copies of my books available on the night.


May 23rd- I am honoured and humbled to be at St Thomas’s hospital in London, signing my books in the foyer, alongside many other well known crime authors, including my friends David Barry, and Hugh Fraser (Hugh will also be appearing at the Jack the Ripper evening, as he played the Police Commissioner in the film), as well as being a first class, and extremely page-turning crime author.

All profits from this event will be going to Friends of the Hospital to help buy much needed Christmas decorations and gifts for Children’s cancer ward, and anything that is needed in other wards. I was an inmate in their wonderful sister hospital Guys, and will always be indebted to them for saving my life. If you are around, we would love to see you. My hubby, comedy genius, Brian Murphy will also be there signing piccys and my books too, to raise money for this wonderful cause. If you are around, please come and see us and buy a book.


JUNE 2nd: THE UNDERGROUND THEATRE, EASTBOURNE- I am there giving my talk ACTING CAN BE MURDER, and also signing copies of my books. Hope you’ll come and enjoy the talk and maybe grab yourself a book, but do come and  say Hi.


JUNE 16th: Fun day at the station forecourt in Shortlands. In aid of:  Help the Homeless in our area, and The Guide Dogs Association.


July 14th: I am delighted to be returning to Portsmouth, for the literary festival. I gained a Masters degree at the university there, in Creative writing and journalism. On this day in July, I will be giving my talk Acting Can Be Murder, at the library, and then in conversation with my Hubby (Actor Brian Murphy), who grew up in Portsmouth. He will be chatting to me about his rise from here to fame.
