Guest Speaker 
Lynda Calder – The Enigma of a Writing Engineer: time travel, codes and adventure  

In Lynda’s first life she was a Maths and Science nerd and did very poorly in English, so she became an Electrical Engineer and then a Science/Maths and Physics teacher. Since then, however, she has become much more. Lynda has always loved creative writing, particulary FanFic. When her father challenged her to ‘write something that could be published’ the Middle Grade The Enigma Diaries trilogy was born.

The first book took 11 years to write and edit and now the second book in the trilogy, The Enigma Diaries: Forgotten Future, has finally been launched after a gestation period also over 10 years. Lynda will talk about becoming an author with such an eclectic and very ‘unartsy’ background, and how seeing the world in a such different way can still lead to a Master of Arts in Creative Writing and children’s time-travel adventure trilogy
