This has been a busy year for me, and it’s not over yet. I’ve completed three projects, all of which will be published/broacast/released next year.
In February 2013 my play WELL, HE WOULD, WOULDN’T HE, will be aired on Radio 4. It’s the story of the Profumo scandal told from the point of view of Mandy Rice-Davies, who also presents it. It’s timed to coincide with the fifty year anniversary of the scandal. The play will go out under my new pen name, Charlotte Williams.
March sees the publication of my first crime novel, THE HOUSE ON THE CLIFF (also by Charlotte Williams). Set in Cardiff, it’s the story of a psychotherapist, Jessica Mayhew, who discovers the truth about a murder. Pan Macmillan are my publishers in the UK, and Ambo Anthos in Holland. I’m excited about it…
In April, the Laugharne Weekend festival takes place, so I’ll be there promoting the book and helping out.
May will be the month I launch DR FREUD’S CABARET, my new album. This is a set of songs in the voices of Freud’s early patients, some of them written with Anthony Reynolds. Other Welsh artists, such as Jon Langford, Julie Murphy, and Euros Childs, appear on the album, as well as my new band of musicians (violin, melodeon, guitar, clarinet). I’m playing piano. This has been in gestation for a long time, since we did the original show at Chapter in 2010. It’s been worth the wait.
