Undercover: Crime Shorts is once again featured - 14th September 2022 - on the global author podcast, The Authors Show, where I chat to my fab host, Linda Thompson, about writing my collection of short stories, and the inspiration for them.
My friend and I were invited to spend the week from the end of July to early August, during the time the Regatta runs. We were given full board and lodgings in return for light duties such as cleaning guest bedrooms and changing their sheets. Once we'd finished our chores the day was ours as long as we returned in time for dinner.
Earlier in the year, I hit a seriously big birthday. I still think I've been fooled and I'll wake up aged 18 and - like Bobby Ewing in Dallas - find it's all been a dream. But I have a sneaking suspicion it's not and time has really flown by almost in the blink of an eye.

Libby Bridgeman, a stringer for the Village Voice, balks when Max Howard, her editor, insists she interviews Alicia Kane. Though a campus rebel, a rock superstar, and an icon in the 1970s, Kane hasn’t been heard of in forty years. A Brooklyn court case involving a Black Lives Matter protest seems far more relevant. But you don’t say no to Max Howard.
Dellani Oakes. I've been writing since I was a child. I began my illustrious career when I was six or seven, writing terrible verse. I wrote a poem for my grandmother and illustrated it. I don't remember exactly what I said, only the repeating line, "When you get a coffin, you never will grow cold, if you make sure that the coffin's made of 14-carat gold." No clue what she really thought of it, but she thanked me very graciously.
Never a dull moment in my life. In the Music business, or whatever, there was always something to inspire my writing.

Will she find the answers in time?
Cobbled Streets, Radical Fashions, Outraged Locals…And the Highlight of the Week: NAAFI in Dortmund…
Going down the steep cobbled streets is horrid, Mum makes me walk behind her as she's embarrassed at the way the old women lean out of the windows shouting and laughing at my fashions. I'm only wearing what everyone in England wears; minis, midis, maxi dresses and hipster trousers. Nothing radical.
I am still in lock-down, and I have only been out to offer 90th birthday greetings to my mother last week from her front doorstep. Her house was festooned with bouquets of flowers, birthday cards, and gifts. Apparently, she’d had so many phone calls she had not had a chance to sit down to eat or have a coffee since […]
