Last Monday I had the honour of meeting Marianne at Steep Street, what an incredible lady, the things she has overcome would destroy some people but here we have one tough cookie. I am almost halfway through her book which is amazing and really from her heart. The descriptions are very well written and you can almost feel her pain in some parts. If you read a lot of books you will understand this next statement as for a self-published book it feels great.

Marianne is coming along to my author event on the 21st November 2 pm until 6 pm at The Chambers in Folkestone so you can have a chat with her and get her book. I will be doing a full review of it as soon as I have finished it and then it will go in the pile for prizes here.

I thought this was a brilliant idea plus it is a bit different, a walking book tour! I also found out that Marianne lives on a houseboat, I would love to go and visit that. I would imagine that it would be really peaceful sitting and writing there, maybe not so much in the winter.
