Manx Lit Fest

Talks, signings, workshops: all at the Manx Lit Fest next week
I'm delighted to announce that I'll be appearing at the Manx Lit Fest next week. I used to live in the Isle of Man - for twenty-three years, in fact - and went to school there, so this is a real treat.

During my time in the Island, I will be doing two secondary school events, one at Castle Rushen High School in Castletown and the other at the Queen Elizabeth II in Peel, where I'll be teaching sixth form students about writing historical fiction.

I will also give an hour's talk on the enduring appeal of Tudor fiction, and how I write and research my own historical books. That talk will be at the Villa Marina, Douglas, at 1.30pm on Saturday 28th September.

I'm seriously looking forward to drinking in the peaceful green landscape of the Isle of Man again. I left the Island for good in 2000 and have only been back twice, very fleetingly. So there will be plenty of 'skeet' to catch up on.

This will be a four-day visit, and although the Festival will be keeping me occupied much of the time, I'm sure there will also be chances for me to get out and about, crossing the legendary Fairy Bridge, meeting up with friends, visiting old haunts ...
