Helen Thwaites and a little boy.

This little boy was so overwhelmed when he and his mum walked past Helen. He didn’t need to go somewhere to meet Father Christmas, or be good for a week so he could go to see Father Christmas or save his pocket money. He was just walking with his mummy and got a lovely surprise as Helen walked past. #Nocharge His surprise was priceless.  NB: His mummy gave permission for his photo to be taken and be used.

Hello world!

I’ve started this blog to post information about the Waveney Author Group, their author events/book talks and their publications.

The Waveney Author Group was started after a group of writers set themselves a challenge of getting their individual work finished and self published ready for the 1st East Anglian Author event in July 2015.

I hope you enjoy reading the posts and following their progress.
