Emily Barr lives in Cornwall with her family. Her first novel, ‘Backpack’, won the WH Smith New Talent award. Since then she has written 10 novels the latest of witch, ‘Stranded’, was published in May 2012.
Liz Fenwick – Lives between her home in Dubai and Cornwall. Her latest novel, ‘The Cornish House’, was inspired by the history of Cornwall and its people.
Katie Fforde – Her novels have been described as, ‘top drawer escapism’, by You magazine and, ‘…Jilly Cooper for grown-ups’, by the Independent. Inspiration for her novels is drawn from everywhere including ads at the back of magazines and overheard conversations among her choir. I wonder what hse will draw from the conversations at, ‘Girls night in’, after a few glasses of wine.
Judy Astley – Inspired to follow her ambition to write after filling in an application form for an Art Degree, (not surprising since most application forms are the length of a novel), Judy has since written 16 novels. ‘The Look of Love’, published in January this year, was shortlisted for the RNA Romantic Comedy of the Year.
What better way to spend an evening than hanging out with the girls and talking ‘chick lit’?
