Delighted to have been asked to hand out the prizes in the Isle of Wight Writers Circle Competition

Yes, on 21 December 2010 in Newport, on the Isle of Wight, I'll be dishing out the prizes to the winners of The Wight Fair Writers Circle, A Winter Short Story Writing Competition. I'm particularly pleased to have been asked because not only do I love walking on the Isle of Wight but a couple of my crime novels are set there.

Blood on the Sand, the fifth in the Inspector Andy Horton marine mystery police procedural series is set on the Isle of Wight, as is In For The Kill, one of my thriller novels.
