Knutsford novelist has first book published

By on June 3, 2018

A debut novelist from Middlewich is celebrating her first book with a special signing at Northwich Library next week.

Joy Pearson previously lived in Knutsford and was a keen member of the Knutsford Little Theatre.

Her novel is called Untangling the Webs and is available from Waterstones in Knutsford.

Joy said: “Expect the unexpected in Untangling the Webs, a relationship suspense thriller which follows four women’s parallel lives exploring the indomitability of the human spirit, as with empathy and unconditional support of a close confidante they battle shocks, treachery, infidelity and grief, untangling toxic webs of mystery, seeking happiness again. Riveting cliffhangers, male partners, humour, wisdom, music, cats, lost letters, serendipitous discoveries and a devious female stalker are shared with the reader – the invisible privileged guest drawn deeper into colourful characters’ lives.”

The novel takes place in Cheshire, Worcestershire, Cornwall and Provence.

As part of Northwich LitFest 2018 Joy will be giving a talk and signing copies of the book at Northwich Library on Tuesday, the June at 7.30pm. Her talk will feature how a life-threatening incident in Jerusalem spurred her on to write serious poetry, amusing verse, her authobiography and first novel.

At the event she will explain how a life-threatening incident in Jerusalem, from which she escaped, spurred her on to write serious poetry, amusing verse, her autobiography and her first novel.
