Reader and Writer
The Talbot Hotel in Oundle where the ghost of Mary Queen Of Scots is said to haunt the staircase.
A friend took this photo of his bookshelf when I’d first published The Memory of Wood. I enjoy the fact that I’m between Pepys and Poe!
Another setting that appears in The Memory of Wood. The church at Fotheringhay, close to the castle site where Mary Queen of Scots was beheaded.

What the caterpillar calls the end of the world…the Master calls a butterfly…
Creativity is seeing what everyone sees and thinking what no one else has thought of before.
