I interviewed the fabulous crime writing author Hania Allen at the DCA this morning. If you’ve not read her novels … I would certainly recommend them. Her latest ones, The Polish Detective and Clearing the Dark are gripping and layered with detail. They are set in Dundee. I now just need to get a map as a non-Dundonian and find the settings for the scenes… 😊
😊On another positive note, I received a lovely e-mail from Hania Allen to say that she would be happy to meet me for an interview.😊
Just had a very successful day at a Dunfermline school. (I went there to cover NCCT on a supply basis today)
I spent some of the 100 minutes in each class to do story creation activities, with the aim of eventually creating a class book. The children were great to work with and showed such imagination!
Let me introduce myself … I’m Chris, a ** aged Welsh girl living in fabulous Fife. (After all a lady should never reveal her age!) I have lived in Scotland for over eighteen years and love it here.
I have always wanted to do my masters degree and also to write a novel. Despite these “forever dreams” of mine, and over ** years since first graduating with my BEd. (Hons), it was a rather impulsive decision to join the MLitt Writing Study & Practice degree at Dundee in September. It was extremely close to the start of the first semester, and I resigned my permanent teaching job a month later!
No regrets about my impulsiveness – loving it all !
