Cruise Ship Guest Speaker

Best Selling Author

"Borrowers at Savick Library were treated to an afternoon with best-selling Author Caroline James recently. Caroline delivered an entertaining and informative talk about the process of becoming a published author, covering everything from initial thoughts to completion of a novel, and then all the work needed to ensure the book is available for sale.

Jennifer Ray, Library Manager

‘Caroline James presents as well as she writes, her talk provided an informative and entertaining author visit that appealed to readers and budding writers equally.

Caroline James is a pleasure to host’

Olivia, Cheshire Libraries 

'Caroline was an excellent choice of presenter and I would not hesitate to recommend her as a speaker for other events. 

During the presentation Caroline explained to the audience the situations and experiences in her life that had provided material for her books.  I very much appreciate her coming to speak at my events and inspiring the audience so much.'

Julie Lightfoot, Owner of JL Consultancy

"Caroline provided her wonderful talk From Page to Publication for us here at Longton Library. It went really well with great, positive feedback from audience members. We'd love to have her back again when her new book is released."

Tom Brown – Library Officer, Longton Library


To celebrate International Literacy Day in September, Caroline will be hosting this talk.
