Local author Fleur started writing when her children were tiny. She wrote many romances and considers the time well spent, despite regular rejections. After a hiatus, she started writing for short story competitions and one of her winning short stories became the basis for How to Make a Friend. The book is about Alice and her childhood imaginary friend, who reappears after Alice has an accident in adulthood.
Fleur will talk about her journey from unpublished hopeful to becoming a published author, the pitfalls along the way and where she got the idea for her successful book, which was then published by Random House.
The event takes place on Friday 22 May from 3 to 4pm at East Sheen Library.
Tickets are £3 including refreshments.
