THE PROCESS of growing a novel from a first idea to its appearance on book shelves is the subject of a talk by Exmouth author Sylvia Murphy next month at the library.

Sylvia's latest novel Candy's Children draws on a dark side of family relationships to relate what could have happened to a girl deprived of love and thrown out into the world to fend for herself.

Her earlier novels The Complete Knowledge of Sally Fry and The Life and Times of Barly Beach are wry comedies.

Executive Member for Culture, Councillor Sheila Hobden, said: "I know there are many budding novelists amongst our library users and talks like these always give valuable insight and inspiration."

The talk is on Wednesday 3 September at 3pm.

Tickets are available in advance from Exmouth library, price £1 or can be bought on the door.

The price includes a cup of tea or coffee and a biscuit.

As the library is closed for normal business on a Wednesday afternoon, those attending the talk should come to the entrance for people with disabilities at the rear of the building.
