Wild Adventures and Extreme Publishing

hilary bradt


We had such a great evening last night with Hilary Bradt. She gave such an interesting and inspiring talk about her life and her work in publishing. I was completely envious of her life and have asked the owners if I can take the next 2 years off to travel around South America – unfortunately for me, it was a resounding NO!

We will be welcoming Hilary again later this year to our Literary Festival, I can thoroughly recommend her talk. Watch out for more details

We were also really thrilled to have hosted the event in the lovely space upstairs in St Andrew’s Church. A very big thank you to them


Author events

I have just updated all the author events (so far!!) until the summer. Take a look as we have some very exciting people coming to the area. Some events involve FOOD as well as a chance to meet an author. See the events page for the full line up.



So pleased this great book is now out in paperback, I read it in the summer on my extended holiday on San Francisco. It couldn’t be further from that great city as it’s set in the incredibly atmospheric Iceland. The story of a young murderess, who is housed with a family to await her execution and the priest who is challenged with her redemption. It’s a period thriller with a difference. I thoroughly recommend it

We are very excited that our lovely local author Alexia Casale’s first book ‘The Bone Dragon’ has been shortlisted for the Waterstones Childrens Award. Bone Dragon
