Tea, talk, red-eyed frogs and giraffes

Question: What has a crime writer, giraffe, red-eyed frog and bat-eared fox got in common?

Answer: We'll all be at Marwell Wildlife on 23 July 2009 between 3pm and 5pm.

Join me for a sumptuous tea and talk on 23 July 2009 in the spectacular setting of Marwell Hall at Hampshire Marwell Wildlife. But don't worry you won't be going on safari, (shame, I hear some of you cry), instead you'll be listening to me talking about my crime novels and how I write. I'll be reading extracts from my books and I'll also be answering questions (about writing - not exotic animals).

Marwell Wildlife is a registered charity so visiting it is not only a chance to get up close to the wonders of the natural world but also helps play a big part in saving the animals. From pink-tailed sharks to red-eyed tree frogs, laughing kookabura to frilled lizards, giraffe-nosed catfishes to bat-eared foxes – the 140-acre park is home to over 250 exotic and endangered species, ( not including crime writers) in beautiful, landscaped surroundings.

This summer, for the first time ever, Marwell is holding a series of literary teas and I am delighted to be the first author to kick start this exciting programme of entertainment. I will be reading from my novels, answering questions and signing books. There will be afternoon tea, cakes and scones. Yummie!
