SWWJ Members, Catherine King and Eileen Robertson will be welcoming readers to a rather special champagne book launch at Earnley Concourse, near Chichester, Sussex on 28 January.

Eileen’s latest book MISS MCGUIRE IS MISSING which came out on 31 July 2010 sold so well, it has had a reprint since. Eileen’s publisher Robert Hale is pleased with sales, as is the novelist herself. She continues with book signings around Sussex, mainly at Waterstone’s and hopefully her fans will meet her face to face at the Winchester Conference in July. Eileen has finished another book and is tinkering with book three, so watch this space!

Catherine's great new book The Orphan Child published by Littlebrown will be available from 17 March 2011 as a paperback original.

Praise for Catherine King: ‘She writes with authority, skill and confidence’
Elizabeth Gill, author of The Secret 'A gritty and realistic tale . . . The characters are so richly drawn and authentic that they pull the reader along in the story effortlessly. A very satisfying read' Anne Bennett, author of To Have and To Hold 'A powerful and page-turning saga' Dee Williams, author of Sunshine After Rain

Catherine King was born in Rotherham, South Yorkshire. A search for her roots - her father, grandfather and great-grandfather all worked with coal, steel or iron - and an interest in local industrial history provide inspiration for her stories.
