Guest Author Spotlight - Rosemary Dight

I am delighted to introduce you to the work of the lovely Rosemary Dight and what a writer she is. BIO I grew up near Twickenham, the home of Rugby Union, and spent summer holidays at my paternal grandmother's home in Portsmouth. Having re-trained as a teacher in my thirties, I took early retirement and travelled. After attending a writing workshop run by Carol Westron, I joined her classes at Denmead and the Havant Writer's group. I have since written both short stories and novels, all as yet unpublished. THE MAN IN RED Tracey lifted eyelid, tentatively. Light assaulted senses with all the ferocity of a summer Sun in Benidorm. She groaned and pulled a pillow over her head. "Feeling a litt

What a nice surprise this week everyone. My lovely guest author is Pearl Denham and she's written a great poem. Read on.

Guest Author Spotlight - Val Portelli

Not only is Val an extremely talented author, she is also a lovely person. I am delighted to welcome her to my blog this week. And here is her bio. The author’s pen name Voinks began many years ago. It started as a joke then gradually spread through the family, so it was an obvious choice when her first book was published. Despite receiving her first rejection letter aged nine from some lovely people at a well-known Women’s magazine, she continued writing intermittently until a freak accident left her housebound and going stir crazy. The completion and publication of her first full length novel helped to save her sanity during those difficult times, and saw the start of her new career. Now f
