It’s Never Too Late To Write A Novel, an online Wirksworth Heritage Centre talk by local author Shir

IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO WRITE A NOVEL. Wirksworth author, Shirley Mann talks about the strange journey that led her to a four book publishing deal in her late 60s. Her first book, ‘Lily’s War’ is already out as an e book and paperback and has an average score on Amazon of 4.7* with great reviews. Her second book, ’Bobby’s War’ is just out as an e book and will be released as a paperback on 19th March. ‘Hannah’s War’ is due out later next year with a fourth to follow. Hear how wanting to rediscover her parents’ wartime romance led her to switch from journalist to novelist and took her on a countrywide search to find those personal stories that aren’t in the history books. Join in a discussion to decide whether being older gives you more confidence or whether it’s just that failure isn’t so frightening any more.
