Writing an Epic Adventure
Thu 18 May 2017, 19:00 – 21:30 BST
Theo worked as an international lawyer for several years in London, Moscow, Paris and Hong Kong. However, his growing passion for writing led him to quit his job in 2010, jump on a bicycle in Hong Kong and ride the 10,685 miles back to his home in Norfolk. After a year of high adventure, breathtaking natural beauty and a host of ridiculous encounters, he arrived home, whereupon he sat down to write.
In October 2015, Atlantic Books agreed to publish his first historical fantasy fiction novel, "A Mighty Dawn" which is now out and doing very well and a second book will follow in early 2018. Theo is an inspirational speaker and has agreed to come and speak to us here at St Mary's!
Theo will be discussing how he came to write 'A Mighty Dawn', his love for dark age history and creative writing and we strongly recommend you come along to what will be a really interesting and inspiring evening.
You will also be able to buy Theo's book as he will be doing a book signing at the end of the evening.
