Writing Groups in Devon


The Exeter Authors Association Rock Costa

The EAA met in the darkened recesses of the new improved Tiverton, Costa. It was a great turnout with members traveling from across Devon including Brixham, Exeter, Tiverton, and the darkest regions of the Devon countryside. The seemingly innocent faces masked the sheer scope of writing depth that sat crouched over half drunk coffees. Their writing covers anything from erotic fantasies to psychopathic killers and everything in between.

The Books

The newest member of the group was Jeni Braund, a poet from Exeter who writes poetry based on her life experiences. 

Richard Dee has just published his latest sci-fi novel 'Myra.' 

Myra is is the story of Dave Travise,  An ex-Navy man on the run; somehow he’s ended up in a dead man’s shoes; on a new ship and on the wrong side of the law. With no way to prove his innocence, he’s just got to play along and keep his head down if he’s going to survive. As if he doesn’t have enough problems, now he’s fallen for Myra, the engineer on his new home.

Jenny Kane has also been busy with her latest novel, 'Abi's Neighbour.' 

Abi Carter has finally found happiness. Living in her perfect tin miner’s cottage, she has good friends and a gorgeous boyfriend, Max. Life is good. But all that’s about to change when a new neighbour moves in next door. Cassandra Henley-Pinkerton represents everything Abi thought she’d escaped when she left London. Obnoxious and stuck-up, Cassandra hates living in Cornwall. Worst of all, it looks like she has her sights set on Max.

But Cassandra has problems of her own. Not only is her wealthy married lawyer putting off joining her in their Cornish love nest, but now someone seems intent on sabotaging her business. Will Cassandra mellow enough to turn to Abi for help – or are they destined never to get along?
