We have had numerous successes and have enjoyed helping each other and sharing in their success.

The Group has been together for many year.  We were, at the start, all beginners but over the years have gained a great deal of experience and have now produced books for children and early teens, local history, adult fiction and non fiction with plays, historical fantasy and psychology.

Our Tutor, Mrs Marion Hough, is herself a well published author having written non fiction, romance, historical sagas and children’s books.  She has her own website and is the inspiration behind all our efforts.

All the books can be seen and ordered on the following pages and some are available at The Book Inn, Leigh-on-Sea.
