New book announcement

Chepstow Castle by Mark Rees from The Little Book of Welsh Landmarks
Chepstow Castle

I’m very pleased to announce that the title of my next book will be… (drum roll, please)…

The Little Book of Welsh Landmarks!

It will squeeze around 300 amazing Welsh places into one “little book”, from world famous attractions to obscure hidden gems.

For anyone familiar with The Little Book of Welsh Culture, this will be very similar and look and feel. You could even call it a sequel of sorts.

In all good bookshops November 2018.

A paranormal party

A huge thank you to everyone who came along, and helped make a success, of my paranormal party at the Grand Hotel during the Swansea Fringe Festival.

The Ghosts of the Grand was a chance to tell some ghastly stories, to do a little ghost hunting, and even catch a spot of spooky belly dancing (yes, spooky belly dancing).

Oh, and there was a ghost in the room with us as well, which was… unexpected. See if you can notice it in the photos.

If anyone would like to get in touch with, or hear more from, the amazing people involved, you can track them down here:
