I love meeting readers and getting to travel for work is one of my favourite things about being an author.

If I’m coming to a town near you, it will be listed below.

If you’re an events organiser and would be interested in inviting me to speak at your festival or bookshop, please click here and email the appropriate contact for your region. If you’re not sure who to contact or can’t find the right publisher, please contact my agent, Eve White at the Eve White Literary Agency. Hope to see you on the road soon!

Below is a list of all the places I’ll be in the next few months.

Sadly you won’t be surprised to hear that I have cancelled all upcoming events, but I hope to be able to reinstate them as soon as possible.

When Dr Alderney meets an enigmatic young woman at the Bluebird Rest Home, he is intrigued not just by her beauty, but by her air of sadness and reserve. But Hester Westaway has a story to tell, and as the years go by, Dr Alderney comes closer to unravelling her secrets than perhaps anyone else alive.

Spoiler-free and standalone, The Tale of Mrs Westaway explains what came before my latest novel,  The Death of Mrs Westaway.

Are you ready to step into Hester's world?
