    How do I send you a personal e-mail I couldn’t get your e-mail address to work?

    Hi Bill

    I’ve just read your very interesting interview on the RNA blog. Super. Good to know us northerners are doing a great job in the writing world. I live in Holland but I am also from Saltburn, East Cleveland. I am coming to York for the week end on 22nd March and wondered if you would like to meet up with some of our RNA authors and colleagues for lunch at Jamie’s Italian? Let me know and I will send you further details. It should prove to be a great afternoon out for all.

    My own novel is being published on 1st July this year and you might recognise the title – It’s a romance based in Whitby and on The Isles of Scilly in Cornwall, entitled Goodbye, Henrietta Street. I hope to be doing a few book signings in the area toward September. Perhaps we can meet up at that time if you cannot make it to the luncheon in York. My publisher is Safkhet in Germany and London. I am also staying at Guisborough Hall Hotel for a couple of nights on 24 – 26 March. You can contact me on this e-mail and I should be able to pick it up on my i-phone whilst I am in the UK. I don’t leave until 20th March to spend a week in North Yorkshire.

    Well done on your achievements – it’s quite a rocky road to travel isn’t it?

    I look forward to meeting up with you. My web site is

    All the best
