East Leake’s writers’ group, The Leakey Pens, have carried on with their meetings on Zoom throughout the pandemic.
They continue to support each other to develop their work. March saw the release of a novel titled ‘Redemption’ written by S. D. Johnson, that owes its existence to the encouragement and support of the group.
Redemption, the story of the victim of a brutal attack’s fight to regain control of her life, was written by S D Johnson. Beth Anderson is scarred mentally and physically from the attack and tackles her recovery her way, aided by the love of two vulnerable young children and the steadfast care of a good man.
Redemption, available on Amazon, is already accumulating 5* reviews and international sales. Canadian author, Bryan Quinn recommended the book to the presenter and producer of The Writer Talks!, Asha Kumar, in India.
Asha has recorded an interview to discuss the book with the author. This is available on YouTube. She was so impressed by what she heard of the group she is keen to interview some of its other published authors.
