There was certainly a welcome in the hillside and on the banks of the River Tyne for me in the north of England this week during my mini book tour, which kicked off at Newcastle City Library and ended at The Richmond Walking and Book Festival. I met some fantastic people who made me very welcome and very kindly bought tons of my books. Thank you.
Thank you to Sheila Naughton for inviting me to talk at this thriving library in the heart of a city full of very friendly people.
Before North Tyneside Library we toured a little of the coast ending up driving through Whitely Bay, only problem was we couldn’t see much of it because of the mist and rain, which was a pity, but it reminded me of another all time classic film featuring The Likely Lads duo of Bob and Terry (Rodney Bewes and James Bolam) 1976.

This afternoon I’m on home turf and off to the Lord Mayors Civic Reception as a guest at the opening of our newly refurbished Arts Centre in Havant for tea and cake. Never a dull moment, eh!
