October 2022 Newsletter

It’s another brief newsletter from me this month as I’m still recovering from the Whipple operation I had in August. Each day is a step forward and I’m feeling very lucky to be here, and really quite desperate to get back to painting, although certainly, lots of planning of future projects is going on in my head! There is some exciting current news, however, which I wanted to share with you.

I am absolutely thrilled and honoured to have had a character based on me in one of my favourite best-selling crime writer Peter James’ award-winning Roy Grace detective series. The book is entitled ‘Picture you Dead’ and, not only did I inspire one of the characters, I also had the pleasure of painting for Peter a 1770’s Rococo style landscape after the French painter Jean-Honore Fragonard, the very painting at the centre of this gripping crime thriller.

Peter James’ book is out now, from Amazon and all good book shops.

My own book, ‘Art World, Underworld’, a thriller giving deep insight into the darker side of the artwork, is also available on Amazon, the links for which are below. Currently, it’s in eBook and paperback format, but will also be coming soon on audio. I hope you enjoy it, and if you do, please remember to leave a short review on Amazon, as I’d love to know what you think.

All the best,
