Charlotte Furness & Rebecca Ryan

Come and support two local authors as they discuss their work and find out about their route into being published. Charlotte Furness writes engaging non-fiction books about women’s history and country houses in the UK, while Rebecca Ryan is the author of entertaining contemporary fiction about life and love. 


Charlotte Furness has written two narrative non-fiction books, Lady of the House (2018) and Unmarried Women of the Country Estate (2020), both published by Pen & Sword. She is currently working on her first novel and third non-fiction book. 


Rebecca Ryan had a kernel of an idea for a book since she was 12 and finally sat down to write My (extra) Ordinary Life during the first Covid lockdown, while pregnant with her third baby. Her second novel, The Philosophy of Love  was published in February 2024.
