The Body in the Library

Today was one of those mornings when everything seemed to go smoothly from finding the only parking space in the free car park that no-one else spotted, to depositing (!!) a cheque in the bank and then getting a copy of a very touching magazine article I’d read at the hair dressers last week as a source for a story plot.

Then I popped into the local library and I’m so excited…

… I’ve booked on a half day workshop at our local library for tips on Crime Writing with Myfanwy Cook at the end of September that I thought might be a bit of fun.

I have never read any of her writing and couldn't find any of her books in the library. Maybe the others had snapped them up?  
I’m wondering what a crime writing workshop will be like?

  1. I've never been to a crime writing workshop, but having just googled Myfanwy Cook I a bit jealous! It sounds like you are in for a real treat.

  2. Hi Madelaine
    I just popped over here from Ellie's blog expecting real bodies in real libraries, so I'm having to swallow my disappointment! Your workshop sounds intriguing - I work in a library and it's definitely the most popular genre.

  3. Oooh, that should be fun. Can't wait to hear all about it.


  4. Thank you ladies. LOL! Sorry to disappoint brokenbiro librarian. (My mother's a librarian, retired now, too.
