Talk  |  Seated

JACKIE WADDLE: Jackie has been writing fiction for several decades. She has completed three novels, and a selection of short stories and poems over the years. She publishes her work under the name of Anna West, and has recently revised her first novel, Breaking New Ground, for Amazon KDP. Jackie has studied through Exeter University and Manchester Metropolitan University, gaining an MA in Creative Writing with Pedagogic Studies at MMU, in 2015. Since the publication of her first novel, in 2008, Jackie has worked with medical and dental students at Exeter and Plymouth Universities, providing Medical Humanities Special Studies Units, as part of a module in the medical degree.

Among her friends, Jackie is known for her culinary art and she has hosted many meals, cake dates and buffet parties, providing home-cooked delicacies. She posts regularly on an Instagram account in her own name - @jackiewaddle. Music has also featured in her life; she studied flute in adult life, and has played in local bands and ensembles for the past 25 years. Both of these passions feature greatly in her fiction.

TALK: In this Tea Time Talk, I will share my personal journey, how I learnt to believe in myself, where I found inspiration, as well as sharing the delights and health benefits of writing with you, my audience.
