In our latest podcast Dave Harries talks to Stroud-based author Sarah Edghill.
Sarah’s latest novel, His Other Woman, was published earlier this year.
“My debut, A Thousand Tiny Disappointments, came out last September, and I was a bundle of nerves beforehand,” Sarah said. “But I was overwhelmed by the support I received, particularly from the local community: people I hardly knew, stopped me in the street to say they’d read the book and enjoyed it.”
Sarah, from Brownshill, was also asked to appear at last November’s Stroud Book Festival by organiser, Caroline Sanderson: “I loved taking part, particularly because I’d previously volunteered at the Festival and been inspired by hearing about the experiences of other authors. It was also great to see my book in shops, such as the Yellow Lighted Bookshop and The Barn Shop in Chalford Hill, where the owner, Clancey, was a one-woman promotional machine.”
Dave Harries is a podcast and video producer and presenter. He is from a background in broadcasting, where he started as a Studio Manager for the BBC in the 1980s.
He’s lived in Gloucestershire for over 20 years and both his daughters attended school in Stroud where he also plays in two orchestras.
As a professional interviewer and avid reader, he is delighted that this series brings those two attributes together as he meets and chats to local authors for The Stroud Times.
