What a privilege to meet the wonderful Sussex writer Joan Moules who joined members of the Society of Women Writers & Journalists at Chester University last week. Joan has written many books and articles and her output is prodigious. I am now reading her best-selling biography of Gracie Fields published by Summersdale. The book has brought Joan such fame and on to our TV screens. Now, she has just been commissioned to write her first crime book - what a girl! This picture shows Joan centre, Frances Clamp, another excellent writer of eleven books and yours truly.
