It was International Women’s Day on Wednesday 8 March 2023, a global event which celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. As my contribution to the day, I joined a group of readers and writers at Bridport Library where there was a series of events including a writerly quiz, a lucky dip and talks by local writers. I was delighted to be interviewed by Sarah Scally who asked some searching questions about This Much Huxley Knows. Also on the programme was Nikki May who enjoyed phenomenal and rapid success with her novel Wahala, which tells the story of three Anglo-Nigerian best friends and a fourth woman who infiltrates their group. (I have the novel on order from Dorset Libraries and will watch out for the TV series coming on the BBC.) It was refreshing to hear about her writing journey where it took five years to become an overnight success.

In other news, I wrote a piece about the inspiration that led me to write The Secret Life of Carolyn Russell which appears on Women Writers, Women’s Books. Find out here how I spent time in Uganda listening to true crime podcasts and the ways in which they influenced my writing. The Secret Life of Carolyn Russell, a psychological mystery, will be released by Bloodhound Books in July 2023.

What influences you to read or write a book?
