I currently offer the following talks:
'Classic Crimes of Victorian Essex'
'The Horrible History of Chloroform' *
'Chloroform and Crime' *
Escaped Lions and Runaway Elephants (True stories of people who meet wild animals in unexpected places) *
'Frauds, Hoaxers and Nasty Low-down Cheats'
'Middlesex Murders' *
'Murder and Mayhem in Westminster'
Talks marked * are accompanied by a powerpoint presentation although if you do not have a data projector they can be given without. It is my intention in time to provide a powerpoint presentation for all my talks.
Talks last 45 minutes, and I will answer questions and sign books afterwards.
I charge a fee plus travelling expenses.
I can also, with sufficient notice, talk about any individual case or do a reading.
I can be contacted using the contact form.
Watch this space as I intend to expand this list of available talks.
Feedback on my talks:
"Local history and true crime always generate a lot of interest so combining the two meant that we had a fully booked event. Linda's presentation was excellent and was enjoyed by all. One of our most successful author events.”
"A wonderful speaker, and very knowledgeable"
"I`m not really a big fan of true crime books, but hearing the author in person was fascinating"
"The stories Linda told...well, we certainly learned things about our area that we didn't know before - they could make a film of it!"
"More events like this"
"Interesting to hear about such gruesome events locally, shows the darker side of suburbia"
"Loved the way each crime was presented as a separate story"
"Shows a different side of the good old days"
