The Author Spotlight on Gigi Sedlmayer, author of the Talon series

Tell us about yourself! I was born in Berlin, Germany, on 19 May 1944. Escaping to the West before the wall went up, we moved around, a lot, changing schools many times because my father had to go where he could find work after the war. It was not good for me, since I didn’t […]

Book Review: Dun an Doras Bytheiad, by Gemma Tarr

The Author Spotlight: Gemma Tarr

Writers Inspiring Change: Tell us about yourself! Gemma: I’m a bit of an introvert, to be honest! Books were always a friend I could turn to when I didn’t have any answers; if I wanted a quiet few minutes to escape to another world I knew I could always pick up a book. I learned […]

It’s weaved with bitter-sweet dialogue, roughly hewed and yet, flippant and […]
