This is especially for Nicola at the History Press - my publishing house - as it isn't often I am able to gather so many of her Essex authors in one spot. The occasion was the autumn lunch of the SWWJ, at which Lady Williams - our Hon Life President - was our speaker. It was also a good opportunity to meet face-to-face some of our new SWWJ recruits. We usually communicate by web-chat and email. Also pictured is Chairman Jean Morris and competition Judge Solange Hando.
