  • Meet the author – Catherine Fearns March 23, 2020
    Sometimes a book comes along that you didn’t quite know you had to read – until you did. Catherine Fearns’ Reprobation was like that for me, a heady mix of Heavy Metal, religious symbolism, romance and, always an essential, a good whodunit-style mystery underpinning everything else. Luckily for you, Catherine now has a series of […]

  • Good Eggs March 15, 2020
    It seems like a world away now but it was only about three weeks ago that I squeezed into a little temporary theatre in Webbs Road, Clapham with loads of friends. We were all bunched up together, happily sitting thigh to thigh, and squashing up even more to get latecomers in. Everyone greeting each other […]

  • Queen and Parasite February 14, 2020
    By accident, I saw two brilliant films back-to-back last week. The first was Queen and Slim, which I’d not heard much about and which didn’t seem to have been getting rave reviews. I wasn’t even that keen to see it but allowed a good friend with great movie taste to twist my arm. I’m so […]

  • Meet the Author – Jo Fenton February 6, 2020
    I’m really pleased to introduce talented fellow psychological thriller author Jo Fenton to my blog today.  Thanks so much, Alice, for inviting me onto your blog to talk about my new book, Revelation. For this novel, I had to send my memories back to 1989, and the time I was a student in Manchester. The […]

  • Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh January 20, 2020
    I’ve been longing to see the treasures of Tutankhamun since 1972, when I was deemed too young to go to the British Museum exhibition. That was a massive sell-out show; I remember seeing the queues and wishing I was whiling away my time in them, though I’m sure I would have been as bored and […]

  • Beautiful in the Morning Review November 18, 2019
    I’ve done so many fun things recently that I almost don’t know where to start… but seeing Flavia Casa’s first feature film, Beautiful in the Morning, has to count as a highlight. The storyline is not entirely new: a gawky adolescent girl, Marielle, is stretching her wings, testing her powers as a woman for the […]

  • Beautiful in the Morning November 5, 2019
    Can’t wait to see new film Beautiful in the Morning by the promising Italian-American director, Flavia Casa. I’m a sucker for the cinema anyway, and this is also the first time I will be watching a movie made by someone I actually vaguely know. Well, that’s stretching it – she is the friend of a […]
