For the present I shall be using this space for my professional details and links to books and ebooks for sale. The old blog had a lot of photos and material related to my life in Spain. This should still be stored here if you want to look at it. These days I mostly post information on my life and photos on Facebook under my name. If you want to become a friend there message me but please post a Little detail about yourself. There are too many false profiles on Facebook.

I am available for readings still as long as an adequate fee and expenses is involved. I am not too far from Murcia airport so could be in London, for instance, quicker and probably more cheaply than poets from Scotland and Wales. I am also interested in getting more judging work, either shortlisting or as a judge of finalists

Contact me first at livinginspain@hotmail.com if you are interested in hiring me for a reading, judging work or journalism.

Mostly I try to place poems in paid magazines or anthologies. “The labourer is worthy of his hire.” Occasionally I give one away if someone asks me nicely. This will almost always be something either too short or too long for the paid markets, or a bit experimental.

First get your Kindle if you don´t have one already

For those who don´t have a Kindle or don´t like ebooks I still have some copies of paper versions. I could do the following titles to Europe for 10 euros including postage:

Red Light Districts of the World

My Schooling

Baker´s Dozen

I also have some copies of Journeys to the Underworld which I could do for 12 euros as it is heavier.

If you live outside Europe I would need to check postage. I also have single copies of a few other titles. Ask and I´ll see if I have it.

Payment can be made to my other email at fifteenaardvarks@yahoo.co.uk via Paypal. Please don´t send messages to that one as they probably won´t be read.



I am slimming down my library and getting rid of some nineteenth century novels and poetry that I probably won´t be reading again, also a lot of Everyman books. The latter are a bit faded. The other books are in better condition. Let me know if there is anything particular you are looking for in these categories. I might have it. Some of the books are listed here:



One of my hobbies is collecting minerals which I sell occasionally at artesan fairs. Many pieces are only 2 or 3 euros but there would be postage on top. Often it is more economical to put several pieces together. Lots of quartz and amethyst locally plus other rarer √≠tems. Consult me if there is any particular stone you want to collect and I´ll see if I have it.



I also string together bracelets from chips of real stone. These are priced at 4 euros plus postage. Lots of different types: citrine, lapis lazuli, turquoise, amethyst, apatite, moonstone, etc.



My husband, James Plaskett, is a chess grandmaster and gives chess lessons. If you aren´t based near Cartagena in Spain these could be on one of the many chess sites such as ICC or via Skype. Contact him at haroldplaskett@yahoo.co.uk

Lessons are circa 40 euros an hour depending on what is required.
