Subjects:I give broad-ranging talks about the contents of my books "Perth & Kinross - A pocket miscellany" or ?A-Z of Halifax?.

These books are both packed with local history trivia. They cover diverse topics of local interest that even many locals won?t know about.

In Halifax you?ll discover the town?s connection with a royal prince, its involvement with industrial diamonds, the failed observatory, and also escapees from its zoo.

In Scotland it answers questions such as how a young girl from rural Perthshire became the Empress of Morroco; why David Attenborough ran away from Capercaillies and what happened when one clan stole another's Christmas dinner.

Talks within 5 miles of Edinburgh or 15 miles of Halifax, West Yorkshire. But I?ll talk anywhere if my rail fare is covered.
