March 2nd – Elizabeth Heery

Elizabeth Heery

“Writing a Saga” charts Elizabeth Heery’s journey from rejection letters to becoming a published author. She starts by talking about her background as an actress and how that has informed her writing. She covers her connections to Southport: How she went to Christ the King School and about how her family background has been a rich source for her books.

Elizabeth discusses the setting of her books, discovering the genre of saga, writing historical fiction, and how growing up in the North West with her connections to Liverpool as well as Southport, has featured in her novels.

If you would like to hear either of these speakers make sure you attend our monthly meetings at Christ Church on Lord Street.
