Tales of Newcastle’s witch trials

It’s been a little while since my last talk (that’s another story), but I now have an author event planned as part of the Newcastle book festival: Books on Tyne 2019. Come along and see me at the City Library in Newcastle on Tuesday 26th November 2019 at 2pm till around 3.30pm.

Trailer for Sunwise (Turn your sound up!)

I’ll do a short reading from Sunwise, which is the sequel to my debut historical novel Widdershins. Both books were inspired by the 17th century witch trials in Newcastle, and Sunwise picks up where Widdershins left off, in August 1650.

After the reading, I’ll give a presentation about witches, witchfinders and witch trials from around the world, starting with Newcastle’s trials, where fifteen women and one man were hanged on a single day for witchcraft.

There’ll be an opportunity to ask questions about the presentation, or about my books, my research or how to get started writing. And if you’re interested in ‘witcherature’ and want me to suggest some books about witches, then just say the word.

Books on Tyne – a week of brilliant books and their writers

There is a small entrance fee of £3, all of which goes to the library to help keep libraries in Newcastle going (a very worthy cause).

Please book to make sure you get a seat. Just follow this link, click on ‘Get Tickets’, scroll down till you see my event and off you go.

And don’t forget to see who else is on – there’s a brilliant selection of writers appearing in Newcastle. See you there!

Best wishes, Helen
