Author, broadcaster and politician Anne Widdecombe will be visiting Devon County Council's library in St Thomas, Exeter next month.

Ann, who is best known as a Member of Parliament, will be at the library on Tuesday 16th February from 7.30pm to talk about her work both in politics and as published writer.

The conservative MP for Maidstone and Weald, who has held her seat for over twenty years, has long held ambitions to write novels and began writing fiction in 2000. She published her first book in 2002 and has since written three more. She is currently working on her fifth, 'An Act of Brotherhood', the last in the trilogy formed by An Act of Treachery and An Act of Peace. She also writes a regular column for the Daily Express.

Following the announcement of her retirement from politics at the next election, the former Shadow Home Secretary plans to live in her recently purchased house on Dartmoor where she intends to continue writing more novels.
