Stairwell in Scotland Book Festival was held at the Scottish Storytelling Centre, Edinburgh, on 17th & 18th September 2021. On the Friday evening, I spoke about and read from “The Water Bailiff’s Daughter” in front of a theatre audience. The event was live-streamed. All day Saturday, there was a book fair at which several independent presses were present, and author readings took place throughout the day. It was wonderful to meet my publishers at last, and to chat with fellow Stairwell authors, mingle with readers, and sign books.
