The Great North Author Tour – Sat 16th June

I’m delighted to be part of the first ever ‘Great North Author Tour’ on Saturday 16th June.

It’s been organised by the fantastic and award winning Drake’s Bookshop and I’ll be touring independent bookshops alongside fellow writers Dan Smith, Chloe Daykin and Em Lynas.

Independent bookshops are huge supporters of all authors (not just the celebrities or heavily promoted ones!). They are also an important part of our book community, offering readers a knowledgable and enthusiastic service. It’s a pleasure to be a part of it. It would be brilliant to see lots of friendly faces along the way, but you can keep up to date with the tour on the day with


It should be a lot of fun!!
