'The past is never dead...'


Sister Scribes

Little did I know how influential attending the Romantic Novelists’ Association conference in

2017 would be in terms of finding writer friends. For me by far the most valuable part of the

weekend was time spent with other authors and through social media we kept in touch. I was

delighted to find that Kitty Wilson lived in Cornwall (although the rat bag has since moved to

Bristol) and when Cassandra Grafton came here on a research trip we all met up.


From this meeting the idea of organising our own mini retreat/girls’ break was formed. We

invited along Susanna Bavin and Kirsten Hesketh (who’d we also met at the RNA conference)

and the rest, as they say, is history and after four days in Bath we’d become Sister Scribes.


Our bond is formed through genuine friendship, but every Monday one of us writes a column

for Frost online magazine about some aspect of women writing. You can find us there, or on

Twitter @Sister5cribes.
