A lovely day was had at The Loddon Swan Hotel last Saturday (25th Feb) where I joined some lovely authors to raise money for Alzheimer’s Research UK.

People are asking if I support the Alzheimer’s Society or Alzheimer’s Research UK? I support both, both do fantastic work. The Alzheimer’s Society support people living with dementia and their carers and Alzheimer’s Research UK, like it says on the tin, does the research. One day we will have a cure, a long way to go but raising funds, and awareness, is just one way of helping. A way of knowing the support for which charity is this: our annual walk and the 50 SHAVES of Grey event Jo Wilde and I are organising will be for the Alzheimer’s Society and the literary events (festivals and anthologies) will be for Alzheimer’s Research UK . Dementia and rescuing/rehoming cats are very close to my heart and my Nov ‘Meet The Authors Weekend’ will be supporting Anglia Cats Protection (and all literary events thereafter).

Want to enter a literary competition? Winning entries and those highly recommended will be inserted into a published book and sold on Amazon. All royalties will go to Alzheimer’s Research UK. For entry form go to www.getwriting.co.uk

I loved writing a story in this anthology and guess what, I’ve just written another one but I can’t tell you much about it yet, apart from it’s stories are about a writing weekend and will raise money for Alzheimer’s Research UK.                  .

Little Kitty, the Cat Burglar, has great reviews and is available to buy on Amazon, both as a paperback and on Kindle.

I know you don’t spell ‘writery’ like that but I say it so I wrote it. And it is an exciting time…

Last November I led a set of writing workshops and had the fabulous authors/tutors: Glynis Smy, Ann Bowyer, Rosy Thornton, Jayne-Marie Barker  and Jo Wilde run some sessions. 6 of the writers set themselves a challenge to write and self-publish before July 10th. I decided to join them in this challenge. We decided on the name Waveney Author Group (WAG) as we all live within the Waveney area.

Our first meeting was at The Coconut Loft Art Gallery and we were grateful for the support of The Journal newspaper who came to do an article on us and took this picture.

The Coconut Loft Art Gallery became our place to meet. Firstly on a monthly basis and now we meet on a weekly basis to enable the writers to achieve their goal. The Coconut Loft Art Gallery is a great place to write, an inspiring place that not only sells lovely food but also Richard and Gina, the owners, are always willing to help, whether it be to help one of the writer’s sort her blurb out or help another writer sort her page layout.
