I’d like to introduce Leslie Handler, author of Rat’s, Mice and Other Things You Can’t Take to the Bank. Leslie describes herself as ‘a late bloomer’, meaning she was born at the tail end of the boomer generation. She writes memoirs and personal essays about her experience and observations of life.
Meghan is publishing 28 years (and counting) of the journals she has kept since she was eight years old. The journals hold what she can’t say aloud, what she wishes were true and what she fears is true.
Jane describes herself as a late developer when it comes to trying out the writing gene that flowed through her family. After a long career as a nurse and midwife, retirement saw her put together a book about her mother’s life with her sister. Since then she has written four books, It Won’t Hurt A Bit is a recall of nurse training in Aberdeen in the Sixties. It Shouldn’t Happen To A Midwife is set in Belfast and Call Me Sister finds her in Edinburgh and Ross-shire. And finally, Telling tales. She is currently working on her next book.
