From Hampstead to Hollywood and Back

Date to be arranged

Telling tales has taken me round the world. If you’re near London join me for an informal chat about stories and stars, and where they got me.

All my life I’ve been telling stories.

At first, I made up stories to get out of boring homework, or playing sports at school and almost got myself expelled.

Then, I started writing stories down, had them nominated for awards and sold them for real money to magazines.

Soon, stories I pitched to video producers, film companies and the BBC would take me to the South of France, to Africa, to Asia and finally to the USA and Hollywood itself.

They also got me to work with some amazing (and some distinctly not-amazing) stars. To be served lunch personally by the president of Zambia. To fake a child-birth in a Malaysian hut. To fall down a mountain in the Caribbean.

To make all kinds of films and write best-selling and award-nominated novels.

I’ll be talking to fellow Hampstead author Antonia Logue about where my tales took me, my books, films and stories at the best local community centre in the world – Burgh House, Hampstead.

Do join me if you’re in or near London on that day.

I’ll be taking questions and signing books too.

Burgh House
New End Square
London NW3 1LT
