Join Pamela Hartshorne as she talks about her latest novel The Cursed Wife, a page-turning, psychological thriller set in Elizabethan London.
Pamela is a York-based novelist, writer and historian. The Cursed Wife is her fifth novel, and she has also written a number of non-fiction works and has been the project editor on several high-quality illustrated books.
Pamela Hartshorne has had a fascinating life and career including stints as cook on an outback cattle station, TEFL teacher in Jakarta and French-speaking interpreter on expedition in Cameroon before ending up back in London as foreign newsdesk secretary at ‘The Observer’. She then wrote 60 books for Mills & Boon as Jessica Hart as a method of funding her Ph.D. in Medieval Studies at the University of York. Pamela still lives in York and in addition to researching and writing historical novels she occasionally teaches writing courses and is a freelance project editor for illustrated books.
She has written 4 historical novels set in and around York, Time’s Echo, Memory of Midnight, The Edge of Dark and House of Shadows. Her fifth novel The Cursed Wife is a page-turning, psychological thriller set in Elizabethan London.
Funding from the Dringhouses & Woodthorpe Ward Committee continues to make a difference to our area.
On the Revival estate, off Tadcaster Road, there are four grit bins which were installed when the estate was first built. Local Lib Dem councillors have been trying to find out who is responsible for them, but it seems no-one is!
We have therefore stepped in and have agreed that the Ward Committee will ‘adopt’ these grit bins. They have all now been re-filled (paid for from the ward budget) and two have been relocated to ensure a more even distribution across the estate.
Further up Tadcaster Road, Brunswick Organic Nursery has delivered two wheelchair-accessible raised beds to Dringhouses library. The beds have been funded from the ward budget, and are a further addition to the wonderful revamped patio area at the side and rear of the library.
