Great night at Addiscombe and Shirley

Tha

Last Tuesday, I had the pleasure of being the guest speaker at Addiscombe and Shirley Rotary club. They meet at The Chateau restaurant in South Croydon and what a spectacular place it is. The meal I had, sitting next to president Annette, was truly excellent.

The distinguished audience and me!

It was the first time I had given a talk about the last two of my three novels The Emerald of Burgos and Expulsion and only the second time for many years that I had used Powerpoint. I could tell the talk had gone down well by the sheer number of questions and the obvious interest it generated.

It was good to be present when a guest, Shankara, from Bangalore also attended and exchanged Rotary flags with Annette. Shankara invited me to meet him when I will be in India in 2019 and I plan to take him up on that!

So thank you Joe Baxter for inviting me, the club for their generous hospitality and all those members who bought copies of my books. I hope you enjoy reading them!
