Hi Andy, tell us a little bit about your book! (Or as much as you’re allowed to!)
Breaking the Lore is a fantasy crime comedy. This might not even be a genre – it is now! I have deliberately mixed things up in order to produce something a bit different. It is intended to appeal to people who enjoy well-constructed fantasy that doesn’t always take itself too seriously. Having said that, the draft has been enjoyed by beta readers of all ages, both sexes, and who read a variety of different genres; so I think it has a lot of crossover appeal too.

WoW has played a critical role as one of the longest running writing and literary organisations in the country, in bringing the best of culture from across the country and internationally to audiences throughout the Liverpool City Region.
We are so, so sad at hearing the news of Linda Meagor’s death, a sadness that we know is being shared across the whole of the artistic and cultural community in Merseyside. We first met Linda in late 2014, when she was working for Culture Liverpool, and was helping us find a venue for one of our festival events. We were struck by her enthusiasm, commitment and shining personality. From then on, we – I say we – all the WoW team past and present, collectively and individually, became friends with Linda; how could you not be friends with her? She had a unique ability to be knowledgeable about the arts, an astute and highly organised organiser, and always retain her sense of balance, never ‘losing it’ as is so often the case when we’re all under the usual insane pressures of festival and event delivery, and keep her sense of fun, with her own great laugh.
