On Tuesday 21 November, I’ll be reconnecting Bridport Past to Bridport Present with the launch of my debut novel, The Chicken Soup Murder.
I like solitude. Even before I needed peace for writing (though, come to think of it, I’ve managed to work with the sound of sanding and drilling going on for the past few years) I liked being on my own: to hear my own thoughts and observe the world and dream, not having to talk (except to myself) or be derailed by someone else’s thought train.

How sweet the reward for a job done. Delicious rhubarb and elderflower sorbet from West Bay.
The job: completing the author questionnaire or A.Q. to go with my forthcoming novel The Chicken Soup Murder.
