The day double agent Eddie Chapman handed himself in at a Littleport farm

Mon, 25 Jan 2016 12:57:48 +0000

I have been researching my next book which will have a WW2 background and this led me to meet Vivien Hawes, whose father George Convine was farm manager at Apes Hall, Littleport, Cambridgeshire when double agent Eddie Chapman turned up out of the blue in the middle of the night on 16 December 1942, waking […]

Sorting through a box of papers recetly, “maths genius” Lionel March stumbled across a hidden treasure – a three page letter from Alan Turing written to him when he was a schoolboy. Lionel  had created a new form of algebra which so impressed academics that it was sent to the code breaker at his computing […]

Ovarian cancer and the ROCA Test

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 11:53:53 +0000

Angelina Jolie is the woman who can be credited for single-handedly doing more to raise awareness about ovarian cancer than anyone else; it never made national news headlines until she shared her personal experiences. As a carrier of a faulty version of BRCA1 gene, and having had a double mastectomy, Jolie opted for further preventative […]

In memory of Michael Deaves and my IRA scoop

Wed, 11 Feb 2015 08:52:51 +0000

I was saddened to read that my former Cambridge News colleague Michael Deaves has died. When I first started at the News, Michael appeared rather a daunting and aloof figure, he was the paper’s university correspondent. His sister sums him up nicely by saying: “He had a slightly macabre sense of humour. His coffin will […]

A literary lunch with The Shop Girls and Sandra Howard

Sun, 18 Jan 2015 12:46:03 +0000

I never imagined ten years ago when I first met the gorgeous Sandra Howard during my role as the Conservative Party’s Eastern Region Press Officer during the 2005 general election when her husband Micheal was the Tory party leader that I would one day be sharing a literary lunch platform with her. Sandra has a […]

Where are the world’s best osteomyelitis experts?

Thu, 08 Jan 2015 10:31:31 +0000

Where are the world’s best osteomyelitis experts? I ask this because my son David has suffered from chronic osteomyelitis in his left mandible, his jaw, for more than 11 years. It all started from an abscess in the root of a tooth, and has plagued him for half of his young life. Yesterday David, who […]

The Shop Girls makes Sunday Times 2014 “brilliant books” list

The year has got off on a terrific start with my book The Shop Girls being included in The Sunday Times selection of best reads for 2014. It is ranked second in the highlighted biography section, a total and unexpected shock, though a very pleasant one. As you can see, my book is listed after […]

One hundred years on, Sir Edgar Speyer has been commemorated for his support in helping to fund Captain Scott’s expeditions to the Antarctic, and for his major contribution to polar research.

The Shop Girls launch at Heffers makes history

Sat, 04 Oct 2014 18:33:43 +0000

I have been on cloud nine since the launch of The Shop Girls in Heffers fabulous bookstore, Cambridge earlier this week. The launch was a sell-0ut, with tickets being snapped up six weeks before the event, even before I had secured some for my family, and my editor from Little Brown and agent had also […]

Good luck Heidi Allen

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 12:05:22 +0000

I am thrilled to hear the news that Heidi Allen has been shortlisted – one of four all-female candidates – as Andrew Lansley’s successor to be the next Conservative parliamentary candidate for South Cambridgeshire. Heidi wooed and won support from party members at South East Cambridgeshire last December, she won every round of votes during […]
