Meet the Author

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.”

She also told us that if you want to be a writer, you should never quit your day job because you more than likely would not write. “Writing doesn’t work like that,” she said.

I found her talk to be enlightening, entertaining, and quite funny. She had quite a few fans there. I, personally, had not read any of her work yet but I just had to go to an author reading in my neighbourhood. I’m glad that I did.

I picked up a copy of her book A is for Angst


and she signed it for me.
A lot of people there told me it was hilarious. I look forward to reading it.

If you want to find out more about here, you can check her website.

  1. Thanks for sharing! I think I'll pick that one up the next time I'm looking for a book to read. 🙂
