Yes I still give talks and am listed on the WI and National Association of Women’s Clubs lists. 

I currently offer the following talks:

  • Essex Murders
  • 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*
  • Victorian Poison Murders*
  • Murder and Mayhem in Westminster

* Indicates talk marked 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.

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!"

"Very Interesting"

"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"
