"We've already had best-selling author Christie Barlow making a guest appearance and subsequent check-ins with us and we have lots more author visits lined-up with Erin Green joining us on Wednesday, May 12 at 7.30pm.

"We can't wait to meet these talented writers who give us behind the pages glimpses into their writing, inspiration and life in the Rom Com lit world."
