Gill Thompson began her working life as a teacher and has spent nearly forty years at the chalk face. More recently she has also become an author, gaining an MA in Creative Writing from the University of Chichester. Gill’s debut novel The Oceans Between Us, about a mother and son separated by war and by continents, was published by Headline in March 2019 and The Child on Platform One, about a little girl on the Kindertransport, came out in December 2019. Both books were digital number one bestsellers and The Child on Platform One was a USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestseller. It has been translated into nine European languages. Her new novel, The Lighthouse Sisters, about a wartime family on the Channel Islands in Jersey, came out on 4th February.
Gill will tell you about her publishing journey, and the background stories to her novels. She will illustrate her talks with a PowerPoint presentation.
The cost is £37 per head for an excellent lunch in convivial company while learning from a published author.
