Douglas Bruton, introduces Aye Write 2022’s first panel of excellent debut writers.

Douglas Bruton, who was recently longlisted for The Walter Scott Prize for his novel Blue Postcards will be in the chair to introduce this varied panel of debut writers:

Kenny Boyle – The Tick and the Tock of the Crocodile Clock

Fresh, insightful and funny, as well as unflinchingly honest about the tougher side of life, Kenny Boyle’s debut novel takes us deep into the psyche of a likeable misfit who treads a fine line between reality and fantasy – and just wants the world to see her true self.‍

Claire Alexander – Meredith, Alone

Meredith Maggs hasn’t left her house in 1,214 days. But she insists she isn’t alone.

She has her cat, Fred. Her friend Sadie visits when she can. There’s her online support group, StrengthInNumbers. She has her jigsaws, favourite recipes, her beloved Emily Dickinson, the internet, the Tesco delivery man and her treacherous memories for company.

But something’s about to change. Whether Meredith likes it or not, the world is coming to her door . . . Does she have the courage to overcome what’s been keeping her inside all this time?

 Adrian Keefe – Gamebird

An autistic young man’s wretched, bullied existence is transformed when he discovers a strange boarded-up house in the country and gets to know its even stranger inhabitant.When lured off a planned walk by the magical landscape, Spencer finds his ‘pot of gold’ in a boarded-up house with its strange inhabitant, a young woman called Goldy. A strange angel, who wears black and squats in derelict buildings, she becomes a guiding light in Spencer’s lonely existence

Charlie Roy – The Broken Pane

The Broken Pane is about loss and family when families are broken. Finding yourself in the pieces of memory. About a young woman and her search for answers. Walking the line between reliable memory and unreliable narrator, Charlie Roy’s debut novel invites you to consider whether you are shaped by your past ― or if you shape your past yourself?
