Swanwick Writers Summer School

Back from a wonderful week at Swanwick. 300 writers under one roof! The inspiration was amazing, so was the noise in the dining room! Courses, workshops, talks, entertainment, open mics…. It was brilliant. Met old friends, made new, come back with a folder full of information, a notebook full of scribbles and a brain that’s Swanicked out! Must get down to WRITE

Leominster Bookfair

Leominster Festival starts on 2nd June and continues until 11th June with a variety of entertainment, fun, music and family outings. For full details see the website: http://www.leominster-festival.com

Runaway Love

Runaway Love – a mystery/romance

Published in paperback and as an e-book earlier this year I am thrilled to hear I have just sold World Large Print Rights of Runaway Love to Ulverscroft, who publish large print editions for libraries.

Long time, no blog!

Hello Everyone,

I thought it about time I re-entered the world of writing. Due to a family bereavement I hadn’t written a word since Christmas. Then, in early August, I went to Swanwick Writers Summer School in Derbyshire for a week. 300 writers under one roof! Amazing, the chatter was tremendous. It was impossible to think of anything else and with courses, workshops, speakers, panels, quizzes and, of course, entertainment, it was a full-on week and so inspirational. I have come back, picked up the threads of my supernatural/mystery/obsessive love story which has been languishing half finished. My new mantra: “I will write 500 words…” Like New Year’s Resolutions I’m not sure how long it will last, but at least I’m on the keyboard again!

Bookfair

There will be a Bookfair, between 12.00 and 4.00, on Monday 30th May, part of the #leominsterfestival, held in the beautifully renovated and historic Grange Court, (dating back to 1663). Entry is free, come and meet local authors, read their books, treat yourself to homemade cakes and ice cream in the cafe. There is still time to book into one of the Writing Workshops, non-fiction and fiction.

The Festival is also organising a Fun Day on the Grange itself with events the whole family can enjoy. See http://www.leominster-festival.co.uk for full details. A day out to remember
