Two excellent authors of superb historical fiction will be joining us from Bloomsbury Publishing: Natasha Pulley and  Paul M M Cooper.

Natasha’s debut novel The Watchmaker of Filigree Street was published to huge acclaim, she will also be talking about her latest novel The Bedlam Stacks due to published in July this year.

Paul has written for magazines and websites and as an editor and journalist.  According to The Times  his first novel River of Ink is what historical fiction should be: ‘immersive, illuminating and captivating’.
