WAGs raise money for charity

In between thinking about writing a book,  writing a book, reading through what they’ve written and writing more members also take time out of their busy schedules to raise money for charity. I was fortunate to join fellow authors Elizabeth Manning Ives, Sandra Joanne Forder, Enid Thwaites and Sandra Delf at the East Coast Authors event at The Swan Hotel in Loddon recently to raise money for Alzheimer’s Research UK.  To see pics please go to https://suzancollins.wordpress.com/2017/03/08/east-coast-authors-join-together-to-raise-money-for-charity/

Busy! Busy! Busy!

***************

On the Thursday authors Elizabeth Manning-Ives, Enid Thwaites, Tricia Cass, Sandra Delf and Suzan Collins were delighted to be back at the fabulous Saxmundham Library. A fantastic group and one that is genuinely interested in the authors and their progress.
