Hastings born author Joan Moules (nee Longfellow) is looking forward to taking part in the first Hastings Litfest which runs from Friday August 31 - Sunday September 2.

She became a member of the Hastings Writers’ Circle whom she says were so encouraging.
She has written ever since she can remember. Many of her novels have a Hastings background, although she confesses to moving some of the landmarks around to fit in with the storyline .
In her books Hastings is called Fairbourne ,because of the Bourne Stream which runs beneath the town.

Her other novels include; Tin Hats and Gasmasks, It’s One of Ours, The Straw Halter, Fragile Memories, Venetian Magic, Daisy and Turn of the Tide.
