It’s been a long and difficult year, although with vaccines we are at least seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I thought you would like to see this photo of the restored gamekeeper’s hut where I’ve been spending time writing and producing my podcast when I’m in Norfolk. If you listen to the podcast, you will occasionally be able to hear the birds singing in the garden.

We have added a new podcast, Rat Trap by Rebecca Lee, for you to listen to tomorrow and I am planning to read another of my own short stories in February 2022. We are taking a break in January after two years of back-to-back episodes. It has been wonderful being able to produce these magical little podcasts throughout the pandemic and collaborate with so many talented authors and actors.

Some of you may have noticed that I’ve added a members-only area to the website, where you will be able to read more unpublished stories and writing. If you sign up for the trial period of one month, you will be able to download my illustrated book of short stories in Kindle format for £5. I’d love to hear your feedback about this idea, which means I can share more of my unpublished as well as my published stories.

I am still writing book reviews for Roman Road London – you can read my recent review of Graves of Whitechapel by Claire Evans there and they will shortly feature another of Vicky Newman’s Out of the Ashes.

Wishing you all a safe and happy holiday, and I’ll see you on the other side.
