was excited and most honoured to be invited on ExmouthAiR Radio, Devon,
England, by U.K. Radio Presenter Howard James. The interview ran live
on Sunday, May 10th, 2020. Howard invited me on his show because of my
connection to Devon. He had read one of my British press releases about
my latest novel "Deadly Deceit In Paradise" (Book Two in my Buchanan
Mystery Romance Series) and he wanted to interview me about my published
You can listen to my interview with Howard James on my YouTube channel -
can listen to the recorded interview on ExmouthAiR.fm in their "Listen
Again" section. It starts at 1:15:50 on the audio time line. The
programme segment is downloadable and I understand it will run live 24/7
for three more weeks!
Radio is "an award-winning local radio station" in Devon, England
(106.4FM). All of their shows "are produced by local presenters offering
an exclusively local radio service that promotes local events and life
in Exmouth and the surrounding areas."
Howard tells me that the area covered by ExmouthAiR Radio is "a greater
part of East Devon plus the Exe Estuary town (Teignmouth/Dawlish areas).
Also down to Newton Abbott and Torbay....also Exeter/Topsham." -
including of course, Exmouth.
Howard James started his radio career as a volunteer at Hospital Radio
in Exeter and then moved on to BBC Radio Devon in Exeter and Plymouth,
presenting programmes at either end of the day over a period of around
twenty years. He also worked in commercial radio at Orchard FM in
Taunton (along with popular U.K. television host Jeremy Kyle) and
Lantern FM in Bideford.
The programme Howard James presents every Sunday morning (10 a.m. until
12 noon U.K. time), features local guests "chatting about local things
both serious and not so serious plus a sprinkling of music, features and
hopefully some cheery banter."
I discovered from chatting to Howard prior to my radio interview that he
used to walk from the BBC Radio Devon studio in Exeter down St. David's
Hill to buy snacks from St. David's General Stores. My husband Erskine
owned and operated St. David's General Stores at one time!
I've had lots of lovely feedback from my interview and Howard says: "I
have listened to all our chat. Really happy with it. The nearly forty
minutes of our chat seemed to fly by!"
After some apprehension prior to my first ever live radio interview, I
am now brimming with confidence and open to more media invitations!
Don't forget that the e-book for DEADLY DECEIT IN PARADISE (Book Two in
my Buchanan Mystery Romance Series) is still available at the special
introductory price of 99 cents (not for much longer though!). I've also
made the e-book for DANGEROUS DEVOTION (Book One in the Buchanan Mystery
Romance Series) available at 99 cents (limited time only), so you can
catch up with the series if you haven't read Book One already. Both
books are also available in paperback as well.
do hope that wherever you are, the Corona virus is fast dissipating and
you will soon be back to normal. Here in The Bahamas, more rules are
gradually being relaxed and the Bahamas Government is looking at a
possible opening date for commercial travel on or before July 1st!
