Thank you for reading my very first blog entry. I plan to write about the books I’ve found useful as a writer, the books I just love anyway and how I’m going with the endless struggle with distraction that as far as I can tell is the life of a writer. I may also, God forgive me, share links to bits and pieces to do with my latest novel, Hannah and Emil. On the About page you’ll find the origin of the phrase ‘No going to London’.

Wish me luck with the slightly bewildering process of getting organised digitally. I was born in a different age.
