What's on in May and a look back at May over the last three years
For the last few years May has always meant a trip to CrimeFest, 2012, 2013 and 2014 when I appeared on panels with my fellow crime writers. This year, though, 2015, I am unable to attend because of a prior personal commitment so I will miss catching up with my contemporaries and meeting up with crime fiction fans from around the World.

In 2014 I entertained the audience at Bognor Regis Library talking about the inspiration behind my crime novels and how I research, plot and write them. And in 2014 I was putting finishing touches to the first draft of the new crime novel, the first in a new crime series featuring former Marine Commando, Art Marvik.

And in 2013 I gave an after dinner talk to Havant Ladies Inner Wheel at the Brookfield Hotel, Emsworth and a talk to Chandlers Ford U3A . In 2013 I was writing the eleventh in the DI Andy Horton Mystery series Shroud of Evil which is now published in hardcover and as an ebook and will be available in paperback in October 2015.

In 2012 along with my appearance at CrimeFest I was on Angel Radio and I gave a talk to Basingstoke and Old Basing U3A.
So let's come to May 2015
This May I will be giving a talk about my crime novels and crime writing to Ferndown Probus in Dorset on 6 May. I will also be spending some time in Dorset on location research for the second in the Art Marvik series which I have written but just need to firm up on a few aspects of the locations I have used in the novel. I am also working on finishing the next in the DI Andy Horton series, number thirteen which I haven't yet given a title.
Meanwhile Silent Running is now published in hardcover in the UK, along with Shroud of Evil, DI Andy Horton 11.
In addition, Death Surge, DI Andy Horton 10 is now available in paperback as well as on Kindle and as an e book. So plenty to read! Happy reading.
