Web Design

This site was designed by Stuart Gibbins at The Penistone Design Company
(if website still being designed – ring 01226 762119 or 07766 056726).  If you wanted Stu to design yours, you don’t need to be local – Stu designs websites for people all over the planet.  I didn’t need to see him at all for mine – just phone and email correspondence suffices.  I do bump into him in the supermarket occasionally, however, where he makes Uncle Bulgaria jokes if I am wearing my M & S cape.

Some (possibly) Interesting Links for you

The Books and the City page on my publishers website has some fab interviews, giveaways, amazing comps – join their mailing list  so you don’t miss out!  I also write a monthly column on their Features page. Don’t expect anything highbrow!

I’ve written some articles which you may like to read.

Charities

I’m delighted to be the Patron to some amazing charities. You can’t support everyone, but I’ve pinned my colours to the masts of these deserving causes.

Yorkshire Cat Rescue

Yorkshire cat rescue who do amazing work in rehoming cats who are lost, abandoned or for owners who sadly become too ill to care for them and need to know they will be safe. The YCR have a no-kill policy, unlike a lot of other animal charities. I’ve known them since I got my first kitten ever from them 150 years ago. They’re friends and wonderful and work tirelessly and it’s a pleasure to be part of them.

The Well at the Core

This is a complementary therapy clinic for people with the big C and their relatives, associated with Barnsley Hospital. They offer massages, a wig trying-on service, all sorts of treatments which take people out of the zone for a while. Anyone who has ever used the Well will tell you what a fabulous place it is, run by wonderful people.

Barnsley Youth Choir

I am also a patron for the Barnsley Youth Choir who aren’t just a group of kids who sing… they take it to another level. They are invited to go all over the globe because they’re so damned good, and enter world championship competitions – but for that they need a few bob.

Care for Claire

There’s something I would like to highlight to you as well.  I am helping to raise funds for a lovely lady called Claire Throssell.  You may have read about her in the newspapers or seen her on the TV.  Claire’s estranged husband killed their two children in an evil and calculated murder/suicide to destroy her – and he succeeded.  Belongings, photos, everything Claire and the boys had has gone.  Can you imagine – because I can’t.  And his legacy will carry on for as long as the burnt out shell of the house stands.  Ridiculously the only way this house will be rebuilt seems to be by public fund-raising.  The powers that be don’t make it very easy to  so Claire can sell it  and buy herself somewhere to live and try to move on to some semblance of life – and escape that awful shadow into some light.  Care for Claire has been set up by her friends in her parish and if her story touches you enough to open your purse and help her, then please do.  However little – because all those littles add up to a lot.
