Writers vs Father Christmas

Peaceweavercover

10 local writers including myself will be facing stiff competition for audiences from Father Christmas in a sleigh pulled by tiny ponies on Sunday 6 December in the Salon du Livres in Laguépie’s Salle des Fêtes (in France) 9am – 4pm. The Local Writers event coincides with the village’s Christmas Market.

If you are in the vicinity do come in and support us. You can’t sit on our knees and we won’t give you any presents but books do make fine gifts for your family and friends. I will be there with my historical novels Almodis the Peaceweaver and The Viking Hostage, both partly set in early medieval France.

I’m currently working on my third novel set in 12th century Wales and focussed on the life of Nest ferch Rhys, the daughter of the last Welsh King. Her father Rhys ap Tewdr and most of her brothers were killed by invading Normans. The action begins at Llansteffan Castle. I keep changing the title of the new book but I think it might be called The Bees’ Book and will be published by Impress Books next summer.
