Author Jim Kelly will talk about his writing and how the Fens and East Anglia inspires his stories when he comes to Ely on Thursday (October 6).

Jim shot to fame after releasing his series ‘The Philip Dryden mysteries’, set in the Fens, with his first published book titled ‘The Water Clock’.

In 2011 he won the New Angle Prize for literature – an award for works based in or linked to East Anglia.

This year the sixth book of his ‘Shaw and Valentine’ series called the ‘Death Ship’ was published.

‘Talks on Writing’, hosted by the friends of Ely Museum, costs £1.50 for members or £2.50 for non-members.
