Thursday 18th May
Writing Historical Novels

Cherry Bowen, who writes under then name C A Hope, gave us a wonderful talk.
She described all the work of writing and getting published, and in detail all
the research required in order to maintain accuracy. And of course included
a great deal about the real lives of people such as Robert Owen and David Dale
of New Lanark Mills and their families as well as something about the fictional
people based on their workers. She also talked briefly about David Muir, who
will be featured in her next novel, which I am looking forward to reading.

Cherry Bowen (C A Hope) and Albie

Cherry was introduced to us by Albie Sinclair who also outlined plans for our own
possible next publication: A Taste of Dunning.
