A BIT O’ NEWS

 Ryedale Logo

Hello friends. Just a few of little bits of news from, well, me. RYEDALE BOOK FESTIVAL Firstly – and I love this – a group of drama students from the Kirkham Henry Performing Arts Theatre Company have spent the last few weeks scripting and rehearsing a scene from my debut novel, The Greatest Love Story of All Time, and they’ll be performing it at Ryedale Book Festival this weekend.
