Devon Thriller Author Elizabeth Ducie

Elizabeth is a Devon writer with a previous long career working in the international pharmaceutical industry and as a technical author. She has drawn on her worldwide travels and experiences to write fiction that crosses over with some of her previous life too and where she has been based in Russia, Africa and South America. Her first thriller Counterfeit tackles fake drugs and it is soon to be followed by two more in the series all with strong female leads. Elizabeth reads from her first novel Gorgito's Ice Rink.

Local author Stephanie Bailey

'SINGING IN SILENCE'

Stephanie's book is semi-autobiographical, it has erotic moments, thrills, teases and has a political undercurrent that see's the heroine trust and love she has for her 'Sheikh Prince' thrown into doubt. It is set in Dubai and Lebanon and offers a fascinating insight to life as an expat and all that glistens is not gold! Think an exotic glamorous Shirley Valentine and Sex and the City then cast your mind back to a bit of Jackie Collins too...

Devon author Jenny Nater served in World War 2. Jenny was a bilingual wireless operator in the top secret Special Duties Service (Y) at Dover, intercepting German communications in the English Chanel; this place has been frozen in Jenny's heart as long since buried emotions resurface in this incredible autobiographical work written about a time that we can not possibly fathom. Her courage to publish love letters to Rick (Eric Cornish)are brave and touching 'I shall not 'live' until you return, you are my breathing, my living and without you I do not exist...I loved you before I was born ' (15/05/42) Rick's (Jenny's fiance) MTB was sunk on May 13th 1942. Jenny continued to write almost daily letters in the hope of news or closure. Jenny's story is a set of fascinating memoirs and tells us how she came to be a world traveller in her book titled Secret Duties of a Signals Interceptor (A Long Time to Hope)and is out now. www.pen-and-sword.co.uk

Local Author Janet Braund Few

Janet (Historical researcher and historian)came into the studio to tell us about where she lives in North Devon; Bucks Mill and the history of Hartland. She has written guided research on family geneology and ancestry. She spend's part of her time as an alter ego, Mistress Agnes, living in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, managing the Swords and Spindles team of historical interpreters, and we were treated to some anecdotes about life in that time! Some a tad gruesome. Her social history book Coffers, Clysters, Comfrey and Coifs: the lives of our seventeenth century ancestors, emerged out of this experience. She is particularly interested in the role of women in the past and recently helped eighty ladies recall their memories of the pivotal period 1946-1969. These have been merged together in her book Remember Then: women’s memories of 1946-1969 and how to write your own. She is currently working on her first fiction novel.
