Barbara Erskine in conversation with Mari Fforde

The Story Spinner – Barbara Erskine in conversation with Mari Fforde at  Hay Castle.

Barbara Erskine is the author of sixteen bestselling novels and three collections of short stories that demonstrate her interest in both history and the supernatural. Lady of Hay, her first novel, has sold millions of copies worldwide.

Her forthcoming novel The Story Spinner is a time-slip set in the heart of the Welsh countryside. The reader meets poet and would-be novelist Cadi Jones as she researches her latest project – the story of a Welsh queen who has been lost to the pages of time. As Cadi writes, she stumbles across an undiscovered chapter of history. This takes the reader to Roman Britain, Arthur’s Legend and even the Holy Grail as Cadi finds herself fighting for everything she holds dear, even her own life. The novel will be released on 1st August 2024.
