Short (maybe less than one month's notice)

I am a nurse and wrote a book three years ago (to see if I could) and fortunately people seemed to like it. I have since written and published three more. My talk (From Bedpan to Pen!) is a humorous talk about the transition from nurse to writer. I have been delivering it to WI's/ladies luncheon clubs, and author events. I discuss briefly the NHS (I've since been asked back to organisations just to talk about the NHS!) - and then go onto talk about the challenges of writing a book (everyone has one in them!), and marketing a book once it's been edited. The audience seem to enjoy 'my journey' and appear delighted to hear about my success. I haven't got a holiday home in the Caribbean on the royalties from my books just yet, but I'm working on it! My talk is suitable for all ages, and while I write women's fiction therefore that is the intended audience, I have had males in the audience who seem to enjoy it also.
