I recently gave a talk to this interesting and dynamic group, based in the Royal British Legion Hall in Surbiton. Unusually, I talked about my career in the Home Office. I call it ‘My Club Sandwich Career’ because it is in five layers: scientist; administrator; scientist again, administrator again; then finally back to being a scientist. Then I retired! I first spoke to this group about my novels and they invited me back, would you believe!
The talk is full of people I met and worked with and there are plenty of instances of hilarity. I just love giving it!
So many thanks to Frances MacMullen for inviting me to do it and also to the 9 people who bought copies of my latest books.
