It was my pleasure to speak at Clayton-le-Woods Library in September, closely followed by my early October talk at Ormskirk Library as part of the Venus Voices programme. It is always interesting and enjoyable to meet those who support our libraries. Such interesting people come to hear me speak. The provision of Strong Tea and Biscuits afterwards as I sign my books brings a warmth and sense of belonging to the gathering. There is nothing more satisfying to me than when, having finished my presentation, I have the chance whilst signing my books to chat with the members of the audience.
Even more rewarding is the further contact when my readers, sometimes weeks later, get in touch to let me know their reaction to my true stories.
Ormskirk is already booked on my library list for spring ……….watch this space!
