I so enjoyed my recent appearance at the Llangwm Literary Festival to promote my latest book ‘Hinterland: Ceredigion Landscapes’. In just its second year the festival has gained a strong following and visitor numbers were markedly up from the inaugural event in 2016. A varied programme of talks was very well attended. And my enjoyment was all the more intense as I live in Llangwm! A buzzing literary festival in my home village; doesn’t get much better than that.
As a huge fan of the crime drama Hinterland, filmed in Ceredigion, I was over the proverbial moon to be asked to collaborate on this book with series creators Ed Talfan and Ed Thomas. I spent a glorious eight months travelling around the county compiling a body of black and white work for the book published by Graffeg. The pleasure of the talk was heightened by being interviewed by Jamie Owen, BBC Wales broadcaster and fellow collaborator on a joint book we’re currently working on ‘A Year in Pembrokeshire’ which will be out May 2018.
