A few weeks ago I went along to Lye Down With a Good Book readers’ group in the Black Country. The visit was organised by West Midlands Readers’ Network
I’m delighted to have been commissioned by WMRN and Lye Down to write a story between now and September. I will return and read the story to the group and hopefully also at Birmingham Book Festival in November.
I was made to feel very welcome by the group and offered tea and lovely cake. I will now begin work on a story set in the Black Country with a few pointers….
It should be:
Modern, full of suspense, perhaps dark, very much rooted in the Black Country, may involve a strange arrival or intruder….
There were many other pointers or ideas and I’m looking forward to doing a bit of research before getting started. Thanks to Roz Goddard of WMRN and the warm welcome from Lye Down..
