Talking to That’s Solent TV at Isle of Wight Literary Festival

This year’s Isle of Wight Literary Festival was the best ever. A big thank you to all the volunteers and organisers who gave their time to make it happen.

I loved every second of it. the audience at my show – A Woman’s Wit, Wisdom and Pratfalls – was wonderful, warm and welcoming. We had a great time, laughing and sharing the emotional hiccups that pull us up sharp everyday of our lives.

If you missed it, here’s a flavour of what it’s all about. See you next year!
