I thoroughly enjoyed attending the Tenby Book Fair last Saturday. I met some lovely authors there including Judith Barrow (Changing Patterns and Patterns of Shadows) who organised the event. Judith is warm, generous and very reassuring. She hails from the north of England, where the above two books (highly recommended) are set during World War Two.
I also met Thorne Moore (A Time for Silence) who is a local author and a very interesting person. Thorne also makes miniature furniture for dolls houses – a multi-talented lady! Other authors included Mhari Matheson (The Tinker Girl) and Sally Spedding (Malediction and Cold Remains). Sally was kind enough to recommend an agent she thought might be interested in my work. Books were swapped and experiences of writing exchanged. A really worthwhile jaunt. Pity about the weather – we were shrouded in swirling sea mists all weekend but the warmth in St Mary\’s Church Hall more than made up for it.
Here I am looking unnecessarily apprehensive at the beginning of the day. Note the daffodil brooch that one of my lovely aromatherapy clients knitted for me after reading Daffodils!
