My big news is that I have written a comic horror novella for Random House’s Hammer imprint – this is my first novel for about 15 years, and writing it did feel like coming home at last. It’s called Cat Out of Hell, and published on February 27. It is also a Radio 4 Book at Bedtime for two weeks in March. It concerns the mystery of a missing woman, a talking cat called Roger, a remote seaside cottage, and a nice retired librarian with a dog called Watson. I fell in love with Roger, because he is not only handsome and evil, but terribly, terribly clever. But of course Watson is the hero because he is a dog.

On the 28th March I will be reading and signing copies at an event held by Much Ado Books. If you can't make it to the event  you can pre-order your own inscribed book, to be posted after the talk. Simply click here for more details.
Also out soon is a revised (and very beautiful) edition of my National Portrait Gallery book, Tennyson and his Circle.
On Sunday March 2, there will be a recording at the Radio Theatre at Broadcasting House of my new series of six natural history monologues, called Gossip From the Garden Pond. Sandi Toksvig, James Fleet, Amanda Root and David Ryall are all (I hope) already committed to it, and there are a couple of other brilliant comic actors we are currently crossing our fingers for. Characters are: a tadpole, a dragonfly, a water boatman, a diving beetle, a garden spider and a great pond snail.
