Yesterday was a undoubtedly highlight of my public speaking programme promoting EscapingHitler. Not only did I get to talk to fifty confident and stylish businesswomen, but I was actually in the wonderful Hostry at Norwich Cathedral, one of my very favourite places. The equipment was state of the art and as anyone who knows me will agree, “give me a microphone and I’m away” or words to that effect! Unusually this time my talk did not focus essentially on the remarkable life of Joe Stirling and his experiences in Nazi Germany. Instead, my presentation was tailored to my audience @norwichbizwomen. I spoke about the process of becoming a published writer, with hopefully amusing anecdotes from my very steep learning curve as a post-graduate student at the University of East Anglia and with Pen and Sword Books; over four and a half years. My thanks especially to Carole Slaughter and to Lauren, the photographer, from @JarroldsNorwich. This morning I was delighted and gratified to find that two of the ladies in the audience had tweeted about my talk, one with photographs! Again thanks go to Carla Morphett @CMMFamilyLaw and to @Swinton_Legal for being so complimentary. Here are some of the photographs – check out my new short haircut!
