Upcoming Appearances

My new book is coming out on Feb 22nd so there will be some signings to watch out for.  I will have special Perfectly Imperfect Woman bookmarks which match the hardback (which will be on sale in supermarkets and any bookshop worth mentioning – ho ho!) and I will be more than happy to send a signed bookplate and a bookmark for anyone who just lives too far away to get one signed in person. Just send me a stamp and a sending address (don’t forget the address) and specify if  there’s any special message to

PO Box 761
S70 9NY

But I’ll keep updating this list of where I will be in the coming few months.  My new book will be available to buy (signed) at all of these events.

Thursday 15th March 6.30pm – for only £3.36 you can have Debbie Johnson, Cathy Bramley, Miranda Dickinson and me.  Have a GIRLS’ NIGHT IN with us all!

Wednesday 21st March 7pm for 7.30pm – I will be at the White Heart in Penistone for a ‘late afternoon tea event’ with taster-soup, sandwiches and cakes.  It’s part of the Penistone Arts week so my after dinner speech will be about books, especially my new one, but it will be a light-hearted jolly event with anecdotes, not stuffy and serious – because that’s not me. I will do my very best to entertain though it won’t be quite as ribald as the Christmas Cracker evenings.  Tickets are on sale for £12.95 by ringing 01226 762843.  There will be a raffle in order to raise funds for the Barry Hines Statue Fund.

Saturday March 24th Penistone Paramount 7.30pm – I’m actually the MC at this event but I am plugging it because the God that is Willy Russell will be in conversation with Educating Yorkshire’s Jonny Mitchell so I’ll not be centre stage but please come to this amazing event where you’ll get the chance to ask Willy questions about his writing life and I will be as the ‘roving mike’.  More info here. 

Sunday April 22nd – Alexandra Park, Oldham 2.00 – 3.30pm £10 and the price includes a full afternoon tea as well as me ranting on.  Tickets here!

Wednesday 25th April – 6.30pm –  I will be at Waterstones Liverpool One – details here – with Debbie Johnson, Rachael LucasCathy Bramley.

Tuesday 17th July – Arnold Library Nottingham – details to be confirmed
