Julia Chapman Event - 15/3/18

We had a great afternoon last week with Julia Chapman, author of the charming Dales Detective series. 

We had a great crowd at All Saints Church, who came to hear Julia talk but also to have a delicious cream tea! 

Julia, who travelled down to us from the Yorkshire Dales, spoke at length about her interesting life living in many different countries (including Japan) and doing many different jobs, before she became a full time writer. She is also the author of another series under the name Julia Stagg called L'Auberge, the inspiration of which came when she was living in the French Alps with her husband, running an Auberge, the french name for a B&B. She joked that she can only find inspiration in the places she lives, as her latest series is set in the Yorkshire Dales, where she currently lives. We wondered if she might like to move to Penarth and write a series about the town, and she didn't say no! 

Each member of the audience had a copy of one of the three Dales Detective books included in the price of their ticket, so everyone at the event went away with a book and the opportunity to speak to Julia personally. 

Julia said that the church was her favourite talk location to date, and was obviously smitten with Penarth. Watch this space for the next big crime series! 

We have signed copies of all three titles from the Dales Detective series in the shop now!
