This is really happening...

Thursday, 8 July 2021

Four weeks today until Running Tracks hits the shelves of actual bookshops! I've had such an exciting week, seeing (and signing) my beautiful book in real life - and of course, this is all thanks to you good people, so I had to get in touch and say so.

Thank you so much; this is a big deal for me!

Lots of love

While we wait for the main event...

I'm so excited about Running Tracks now; this Summer's going to be a veritable thrill ride thanks to you guys. But if you're currently starved of Deering action - and want to see me try and raise money for Parkinson's UK through alternative channels - watch Celebrity Mastermind on BBC One this Saturday (April 25th) at 5.25pm.

This is the year...

Happy New Year everyone - hope you had a lovely Christmas and these strange times are treating you well, or well enough.

In timely fashion, Running Tracks is moving forward in ways that promise a very exciting year for me - so thank you.

First and foremost - and before I share it with the wider world - here is your first look at the beautiful cover, just as it will be IN REAL LIFE come the Summer…

Hi everyone - sorry I haven't been in touch for a few weeks; what a time it's been, for me and for everyone!

But now, suddenly, we're back where we were. Running Tracks, and your support, were the fuel in the tank of the Lockdown earlier this year, so despite the darkness of these times I feel very lucky that I'm going to be working on it again in the coming weeks, as the first part of our edit…

Happy new month everyone. I had hoped to hit 100% by the end of July, but as Running Tracks is within a whisper of 90% funded, I'm not complaining; really feel like we're going to get there now.

And, not to be too maudlin, but last August was when my Dad died; so much of this book is about my relationship with him and his Parkinson's that it'll be a really beautiful thing if it comes to fruition…

This is the month!

Hello everyone, and Happy July.

The book is nearly done!

Writing it has been a blast; can’t wait for you to read it. Plus I’m looking forward to all these other, sundry, pledge-related activities. Lots of running and comedy stuff will have to wait until this Covid-19 craziness is over, but if you’re after a playlist, or a map, I’ll be in touch to get some details next week - your bespoke treats…

Half way!

Tuesday, 19 May 2020

Well, this last couple of weeks have been really wonderful. Everyone who has pledged so far - so many, lovely generous people! - has given me joy, and that's fed back into writing Running Tracks, which I'm loving more than ever.

I'm around half way through writing now, and I'm hoping to be half-way funded this week too - so, a pretty special time, all in all.

Thank you.

Oh, and it's not just…
