‘The Errant Hours’ a medieval literary adventure and Historical Novel Society Editor’s Choice, has been selected for the reading list of Medieval Women’s Fiction at Bangor University.
“The Errant Hours is a beautifully crafted epic tale of adventure, love and courage, worthy of the greatest Medieval Minstrels. A perfect read around a crackling fire.” Karen Maitland – Author of “Company of Liars”
A new collection of poetry ‘Flocks of Words’ is now available from Amazon UK and Independent Bookshops in Shropshire.
Poems written during a residency at the exhibition: Heavenly Lights: The Stained Glass Art of Margaret Rope feature in this collection. The title poem won first prize in the Imagined Worlds Poetry Competition organised by the Friends of Samuel Taylor Coleridge in honour of the bicentenary of the publication of ‘Kubla Khan’.
Talks about the historical background to ‘The Errant Hours’, poetry readings and book signings can be booked for 2017, for public or private venues. Reading Groups, Women’s Institutes, Libraries, Church Societies and the University of the Third Age have booked so far.
A special collaboration with the award-winning acoustic group, Whalebone, (also called Flocks of Words) is a melding of mesmeric music and poetry, exploring the mythic and natural landscape around us.
‘Flocks of Words’ can be booked for venues around the West Midlands, both free taster performances and ticketed full performances. Contact us through the ‘Get in Touch’ page.
Performances of Flocks of Words have taken place at Wenlock Books, The Greenwood Centre, Severn Valley Country Park and Shrewsbury Library.
