Local Authors Bring Fizz, Fun & Fiction to Kilworth House for Hope Against Cancer
Local best-selling, award winning authors, Lizzie Lamb and Adrienne Vaughan are hosting a special fund-raising lunch at Kilworth House Hotel on Thursday 11 February 2016, 12.30pm – 2.30pm in aid of local cancer research charity, Hope Against Cancer.
The novelists, who between them have published six books and contributed to a short story anthology in just three years, will be adding a touch of romance ahead of St Valentine’s Day as they reveal how they write sizzling romance, hot heroes and books women love.
An inspirational duo ‒ Lizzie was formerly a deputy head teacher and Adrienne still runs a busy PR practice ‒ they decided to follow their long held dream of becoming published authors, little realising that once they had published, readers would soon be demanding more of the same. Lizzie’s first two books Tall, Dark and Kilted and Boot Camp Bride both made it into the Amazon charts, quickly followed by her third novel,Scotch on the Rocks which became an Amazon best-seller in the summer of 2015. Adrienne too was taken by surprise at her early success, with her first two novels being short-listed for the Festival of Romantic Fiction awards, while her latest, Secrets of the Heart, was short-listed for a Love Reading Award last December. With over 250 five star reviews between them, the only thing readers keep asking is what took them so long.
“We are delighted to be hosting an event in aid of Hope Against Cancer,” commented Lizzie. “It’s a cause very close to our hearts and research into the cause of the disease and a potential cure is the only way we can hope to beat it once and for all.”
Adrienne added: “Romance is the biggest selling genre in fiction today and Kilworth House is one of the most romantic venues in the country, so we are thrilled to be holding our event there. What better place to support a fantastic local charity and glean a little insider knowledge into how writers create the hero of your dreams and the heroine you want to be!”
February fun, fizz and fiction at Kilworth House, Thursday 11 February 2016, 12.30pm – 2.30pm. Welcome glass of fizz, two course lunch with tea/coffee.
