After a life-changing move in 2008 that left her suffering a traumatic birth and post-natal depression, former corporate manager Michelle was left searching for a way back to herself. Today, as a certified life and mindset coach, she helps people release their own brand of magic and live their ideal lives, with her quirky blend of support, challenge, motivation and fun.

Stacey Halls: The Familiars

Foyles Chelmsford are thrilled to host an evening with Stacey Halls, debut author of The Familiars. This historical novel is inspired by The Pendle Witch Trials that took place in Stacey’s home county of Lancaster. Readers follow recently married Fleetwood Shuttleworth, in 1612, as she struggles with a difficult pregnancy. She soon discovers that the only person she trusts to help her carry her baby is a young midwife, Alice, who becomes caught up in the accusations of witchcraft which swept through the country. A ‘spell-binding’ debut and a dramatic new voice in literature; Stacey will give a reading of her book, followed by a conversation, a Q&A and a signing.

Tickets: £3 standard, book online at www.foyles.co.uk

Saturday 30 March 2019 3pm – 4pm
Charles Gratwicke: Sawson’s Quest

Join Charles Gratwicke, Chelmsford Court judge turned local author, as he talks about the writing of his historical novel, Sawson’s Quest. Partly insipired by Treasure Island, the book took 9 years to write as a way to relax away from Chelmsford Crown Court. Edward Sawson had arrived in a small village in the Downs some twenty-five years earlier with nothing but the clothes in which he stood. A reclusive figure, Sawson was always on the lookout but he nevertheless had made a happy and peaceful family life for himself. Until a chance encounter destroys it all and makes him confess the remarkable and shocking events of his life that have put them all into the grave danger they now find themselves in… Charles will read a few pages from the novel before giving a short talk on his writing process, followed by a Q&A.
