Mark & Claire were our guests on the 20th of July at our evening event held at Anna’s.

What a wealth of knowledge these two have about everything to do with books, they are both very talented authors with a few books under their belt. It was a brilliant evening, I am sure everybody went away with a bit more information about something. I look forward to reading The Crow Folk, the first in the series of The Witches of Woodville which is available here.

Mark has also gone into the film industry, you can see his film on Prime now. His podcast called The Bestseller Experiment is also top-rated, you can find it here. Mark’s books are available on Amazon here. You can also read all about Mark on his very detailed website here, one of the best I have seen, I might get a few tips when I see him next at The Hythe Food & Drink festival this weekend.

Claire has written some beautiful children’s books about growing vegetables, which is her favourite thing to do every day, the books are available to buy here. Claire’s website is here, another great read.

Claire started recording her gardening information on Utube, which she still does and has hundreds of episodes which you can listen to here.
