Cheers! My friend and fellow author *Madalyn Morgan are celebrating!


We are both LOCAL AUTHORS in Rugby so Kelvin has given our novels a prominent position at the front of his store.  It’s a huge advantage to have somewhere not only to display and sell our books but to have a venue for book-signings and readings.

 Theresa and Maddie Summersault 2 (1)  Here we are having a  coffee at Summersaults Restaurant, where until recently the bookshop occupied the basement. We had a great time catching up with news, comparing notes on our writing, sounding out ideas and really taking advantage of a relaxing morning away from our computers. The lonely hours we both spend typing away…as well as reading, researching, editing…is enough to give anyone the appetite for a delicious cappuccino and cherry scone or two!

 (*Madalyn Morgan is the author of Foxden Acres, a war-time romantic novel)

This is a photo taken early in June this year, in Hunt’s Bookshop in Summersaults; it’s of Kelvin and I at the launch of my recent novel The Forgiving Sand.

And the picture below was taken by Madalyn in the new premises when she and I visited yesterday. HUNT’S BOOKSHOP, Rugby’s only independent bookshop under proprietor Kelvin Hunt,  has just re-opened in new larger premises at 9 High Street, Rugby. It’s in an ideal position to catch passing trade, easy to find and with plenty of light and space. 

  Kelvin and Theresa in Hunts 3 The shop has a wide selection of new and second-hand books, fiction and non-fiction, hardbacks & paperbacks, children’s books, maps and lots more. Enjoy browsing? Believe me, it’s well worth a visit!  I’d like to take this opportunity to wish Kelvin all the very best for his new shop. Good luck Kelvin!
