Every year the lovely Columbophile mentions my Cooking With Columbo book as a nice thing to buy for a Columbo fan as a gift.

This year I get to return the favour by recommending HIS brilliant book, which is brand new and fabulous.  The Columbo Companion – any Columbo fan would be cock-a-hoop to receive a copy of this.  Here’s a link to Columbophile’s book page which has all the country specific links for purchasing a copy.

Also, blog reader Missy Tassels has created a truly wonderful book guaranteed to raise many a chortle from Columbo fans – here’s the Lulu link

I highly recommend it!

For the Murder, She Wrote fans in your life, I hereby have to plug my recently released book.  As a self-published author I have to do this shameless self-promotion stuff even though it feels very weird.

The book is available to order from bookshops in the UK and the USA, plus via the behemoth of books Amazon (this is the link to UK Amazon, if you are elsewhere don’t forget to switch to your own country for correct postage).  Even Jessica Fletcher herself has a copy!

If you are in the UK, a great gift would be tickets to see one of the FABULOUS Solve-Along-A-Murder-She-Wrote extravaganzas my friend Tim Benzie hosts.  He has lots of dates in the diary for 2023 already. Manchester, London, Nottingham, Newcastle and more!

My e-chum Thom Kofoed has lots of fabulous Angela Lansbury related goodies available in his online shop

plus great stuff for fans of shows such as Columbo, Call the Midwife, Kath & Kim, The Golden Girls and Derry Girls.  I have his great portrait of Cher stuck on the lid of my toilet, a Barbra Streisand brooch on my favourite denim jacket and Angela on my laptop.  It’s especially fab at night if I haven’t quite closed the lid…

if you have a Vincent Price fan in your life, the Supper with the Stars book is now available as a paperback version via Amazon – here’s the UK link, again do switch if you are in another country.  I think if you are in the UK, my co-author Peter may have a few hardback versions available too.  A thing of great beauty!

Personally, I love to get books for Christmas, most people do I think.  Happy shopping my lovelies!

Marilyn reading is another gorgeous thing available to buy from the fabulous Thom Kofoed.

and writers!
