… Christmas! as described by Scrooge’s nephew in A Christmas Carol. I’ll be reading this Christmas ghost story at dusk to my little ones – Christmas Eve!

We recently went on a Charles Dickens walk through our local high street with Paul Baker from London and Barnet Walks ( ) and discovered some great local links; such as the step Oliver Twist sat on when he met the Artful Dodger.

To think this literary great found inspiration… literally on our door step! A merry Christmas to you all. And if you want to make 2018 the year you write your life story – do get in touch for a no obligation, friendly chat.
