Hail A New Writer At The Hall

A former social worker who turned to writing when she had to give up work to care for her mother will be on the panel for next month's Writers at the Hall event in Coventry.

Georgie Hale, will be talking about her first novel Tread Softly, a psychological thriller set on a fictional university campus.

She will be appearing alongside pop guru Pete Waterman at St Mary's Hall on Wednesday, 15 November at 7.30pm at the event organised by Coventry and Warwickshire Promotions, in partnership with the city's Library Service and Waterstone's bookstores.

The third writer for the evening will be announced shortly.

Married with two daughters and two grandchildren, Georgie Hale also worked as schools liaison officer for the University of Warwick before becoming a full-time carer. Her second novel, Without Consent, is due out next year.

She said:

"I'm keen to be part of events like this in Coventry because I'm committed to the idea of making people realise that things don't just happen in London.

It's a way of showing that you don't have to be based in London and know the right people to get a book published.

I thought that before it happened to me and I'm looking forward to giving others some encouragement."

This is the fourth Writers at the Hall evening to be held in St Mary's Hall. Previous guests have included Lord Hattersley, Orange Prize-winning novelist Linda Grant, the historian Alison Weir and Sue Townsend, creator of Adrian Mole.

Tickets for the event, which includes a free wine reception and three-course dinner, are 20 a head. They are available from Coventry's Tourist Information Centre in Bayley Lane on 024 7622 7264.
