Today, I spent an amazing morning at the Northallerton Library, with a wonderfully creative group of people.   I am still amazed that my 750-word unfinished story was able to generate such a widely diverse response.  One was an action adventure story with submarines and foreign agents landing on the North Yorkshire coast; searching for the code to a secret that was a threat to world peace; another was an art theft conspiracy and then there was an aftermath to World War II thriller, where a member of the SS gets hunted down and eliminated.  Given the time constraint – we had a two-hour period available to us – all their hard work is still in its rough stages, but I have the group’s agreement to work on all three versions and to post them here on my website.  So watch this space.

At this point I have to say a big thank you to North Yorkshire County Council and the staff of Northallerton Library for a wonderful venue and to Promoting Yorkshire Authors for their great support – Neelie Wicks especially for the continuous supply of coffee and biscuits which did a great job of feeding our fertile imaginations.
