By the Banks of the Rheidol

One of my more quainter headlines, but that is my billing at this weekend’s inaugural ‘Aberystwyth Steampunk Spectacular’.  On Sunday, I am giving a talk between 15.00 and 15.30 at the Old college on… hmm…. have we decided yet?

A historical novelist in the midst of alternative history afficionados may not be the most complete match, but a chat about  about my journey with ‘By the Banks of the Rheidol’ inspirations and creation, some readings and Q&A. Everyone’s journey is different and we all have differing influences and methods in achieving our creation. There is no right way, there is only ‘our way’.

And if there’s any time left, we can have a massed tea duel perhaps?

Stuck in a limbo and desperate to do something meaningful, what to do? That is where writing began for me. A creative way of expressing myself and a chance to harness my wondering imagination. I close my eyes and I'm there. Wish I'd picked 'there' as a warm sunny day on a sandy beach, with the waves gently lapping on the shore...but I have to let the story load in my mind, then watch it unfold, wherever it may be. Currently I'm on a windy bridge, or a Devon beach, or a Cornish ti mine, or a submarine, or looking towards a Hebridean port...
