Hello from Francesca Capaldi Burgess

Hi,

Several years ago I pursued a childhood dream and joined a creative writing class. It opened many doors for me and since then I’ve had lots of short stories published in women’s magazines both in the UK and abroad (under my married name of Francesca Burgess) , as well as being placed in a number of national competitions. My stories have also been included in four anthologies. I belong to the Romantic Novelists’ Association’s New Writers’ Scheme and I’m currently working on a fifth novel, a contemporary romance. A history graduate and former teacher, I live in Kent with my husband and one of my four children.

Hello from Elaine Roberts

Hi,
I’m a member of the Romantic Novelists Association New Writers Scheme, working on, hopefully, the final edit of my first novel, while writing my second. Also, I’ve been successful with my short stories and this has resulted in being published abroad. Outside of family, writing is my life and every spare moment is spent in planning, organising, plotting, writing or attending writing classes in my home town. I have been writing on and off for years, but it’s the last eighteen months that it’s really taken hold of my life, thankfully I have a very understanding husband and family.
