The Lost Boy forms part of the the writer’s Talendia fantasy series.

Agnes said: “it is a great opportunity for me to talk at our wonderful local library about a subject that is so close to my heart: my first children’s book,

“I had been working in central London as a legal advisor for several years until I was diagnosed with an autoimmune illness and had to change my stressful lifestyle – so I started focusing more and more on writing, a childhood dream of mine.”

Agnes’ talk will be the first of the year at the library. Attendance is free and the event begins at 2pm.
