My accident in September 2015 unfortunately put my writing career on hold. Progress has been very slow, but I’m happy to announce that I’m much better, now, and sufficiently recovered to resume book signings. I’ve advanced from wheelchair to walking frame to wheelie-walker and, at last, a walking stick, which I’m also hoping to ditch quite soon. I’m currently awaiting illustrations for a children’s book I’ve written, which is a complete departure from my usual genre of crime and mystery. But fans waiting for a new novel will be pleased to hear that I hope to begin work on a new one soon.
