Hi Steven. Thanks for getting in touch and so pleased you and your wife enjoyed the book.

Book 2 is about a completely different character and I've just sent it off to the publisher for their thoughts (it's another male character).

In my head I know how Arthur's story continues, and I think that Bernadette will be a better match for him :-) So hopefully he will have another outing and more adventures one day.(less)

Why I write

I wrote this piece for http://booksbywomen.org/why-i-write-b... and thought I'd share it here too...

A lady came along to a library event I delivered recently (I don’t know her name so I’ll call her Mrs Miggs) where she proceeded (rather nicely) to list a few things she didn’t really like about my debut novel, The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper.

Please believe me that this doesn’t happen often! Rea Read more of this blog post »
