I'm glad you're here. Would you like to join my literary journey?

Hello, I’m glad you’re here …

I’m so glad you came to one of my literary talks and now I’m glad you’re here.

I love to welcome new friends with the gift of one of my video talks. See below for how to receive yours.

Together my subscribers and I explore the world of great literature, delving into the lives of extraordinary writers, both past and present, visiting their homelands and houses, and reading their books.

Let me be your literary guide …

In my free monthly email, Notes from A Book Addict, I’ll take you on a journey through great books and discuss what interests me in literature today. You’ll hear about important anniversaries, receive book recommendations, discover the magic of a poem every month, find out about films and TV programmes based on classic works, and much, much more.

All this in just one email on the first day of each month.

Every new subscriber will receive a complimentary video talk. Your confirmation email tells you how to claim it, and you can unsubscribe at any time.

Have a good poke around

Anybody could sit down and read the books that I discuss. But have you thought about the story behind the book? Or how the author came to write the book? I’ll help you analyse the themes, consider the various characters and their motivations, and give you links for further explorations … And you’ll be entertained while you learn.

Please have a good look around my website, you’ll find lots to explore. You could start with these suggestions:

We both enjoyed all the French celebrities, especially Chanel, and then Hans Christian Andersen this week was just as informative and interesting.
Doreen and Allan
I loved the Hans Christian Anderson last week. Thank you!
Thank you! Wonderful!
Thank you for providing so much material to help us all through lockdown.
I’d happily listen to all your talks. Fantastic range and depth of knowledge, but your enthusiasm eclipses all.

Many thanks for the abundance of treasures you still continue to give us.  


Susannah – there is just so much I have to thank you for that it is impossible to find a starting point.
The talks I used to travel to Sydney for were a highlight and I was almost distraught when COVID joined our ranks. You saved the day. Now each month I have something to look forward to with your literary lectures.


Every time I go into your website I notice something more to be looking up and enjoying!

I love reading your newsletters and enjoy your poetry selections and book recommendations. Thank you again for continuing to bring literature to life and to inspire me to read more widely.
I can’t overstate how much I’m enjoying this series, and how greatly you’re expanding my knowledge and interests.
You are such an amazing presenter.  The stories that you come up with just bring the subjects to life.
I am always staggered by your depth of knowledge and particularly your amazing character analyses. When I read a book, I tend to come away with strong visual impressions, that can last a lifetime, but you open up views I have not considered. Keep up the amazing work!

I do hope you’ll join my literary journey so don’t forget to subscribe above.
