Blackwells’ Evening

What a wonderful evening last Thursday 15th May at Blackwells Bookshop in Edinburgh to launch Daughter of Catalonia. My wonderful agent Jenny Brown and I discussed the book, how it was born, and what drove the story and the characterisation, and the very knowledgeable audience put us through our paces with some very telling questions about the writing and publishing process. There will be more public events, including the Blackwells ‘Writers at the Fringe’ evening on 31st July at the Edinburgh Festival. The writing process is interesting and complex, but above all very enriching, and it is a real pleasure to discuss it with discerning readers.
