“The Fact In Fiction”
A talk by local author
on Monday, 23rd April, 2012
at St Michael’s Church, Bell Street South, Brierley Hill
Starting at 5.30pm
The talk deals in a humorous way with how Michael got started in writing romantic fiction aimed at women readers, and the tremendous amount of research that goes into writing novels with some interesting examples.
Interestingly, St Michael’s Church features significantly in two of his novels which are set in Brierley Hill in the late 1800s.
One of his novels “Salt of the Earth”is built around the railway accident that occurred between Brettel Lane Station and Round Oak Station on August Bank Holiday Monday in 1858, killing a dozen people and injuring 100 more.
Another novel “Close Relations”features an incident when a tramcar toppled over in 1890 or 1891 very close to St Michael’s church.
The talk is a must for those who enjoy reading; those who want to write; and anyone interested in local history.
Admission free – all welcome
