Update from author Margaret Roberts

Margaret Roberts writes to us about her most recent achievements:

“I have been busy with other pear-related work in 2018 and was invited to advise on a new publication called The Worcester Black Pear http://www.marcherapple.net/product/new-book-the-worcester-black-pear-by-wade-muggleton/

I have also continued my research into Warden Abbey, Bedfordshire and the monastery’s story in brief is now available on the Warden Abbey Vineyard website: http://www.wardenvineyard.org.uk/warden-abbey-story/

I  have also contributed to a blog post on the Warden manuscripts, which was published by the Wren Library, Cambridge in March 2018 https://trinitycollegelibrarycambridge.wordpress.com/2018/03/

The highlight of 2018 was the unveiling on 20th July of a reconstruction painting of Warden Abbey. Completed by former Historic England reconstruction artist, Peter Dunn, the artwork shows the abbey as it may have appeared c.1370 and every aspect is based on evidence unearthed by Margaret over the last 4 years. I was extremely grateful for the support of Dr Glyn Coppack, an internationally respected authority on the Cistercians (also known as the White Monks) without whom the project would have been impossible. The Old Warden History & Heritage Society has purchased the original, which will go on public display.”

This sounds so interesting Margaret. Thank you for the update.

Exciting Updates from author Nigel Lesmoir Gordon

Nigel has recently been in touch with his exciting news. He writes:

“I took part in the successful launches of two books in London late last year:

Clouds Are Not Spheres – My portrait of Benoît Mandelbrot, the founding father of Fractal Geometry.

  1. My biography Behind Open Doors by Ingrid Maclean.

We are holding a second launch party to celebrate the publication of Behind Open Doors at Helgi’s Bar in Hackney at 6.00pm on Friday 22nd February. I will be hosting this event.

I continue to work on a film called The Interactions Avenue. I am the producer, director and presenter of this TV documentary on the latest finding in Quantum Mechanics.

Bewley Books are publishing two new novels I’ve written under the banner Karma Lawyer. The first is called Courage and Love, which will come out in the Spring. Its sequel When the Knitting Had to Stop will be released in the Autumn.

My production company Fractal Fun Ltd aspires to produce a documentary based on Behind Open Doors during the course of 2019.”

Hey Nigel, what a busy person you are. Good luck with all of your ventures.
