I’m not the world’s greatest public speaker – otherwise I wouldn’t bother to be a writer. But I do make occasional public appearances, which I’ll try to remember to list here before rather than after they happen.

More information via the links, when available.

Please check with the organisers directly, rather than relying on this irregularly updated page, before making any arrangements to come and see me.
