Last night I met an author. She came to my neighbourhood library to talk about her writing and to read some excerpts of her work.
Her name is Barbara Haworth-Attard.
I love how she told us that she had always written but had never even thought that it was something you could do as a career. She said, “I thought all writers were either British or dead.”
