Writers and Readers in Conversation with Tina Baker

June 22, 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Have you ever had aspirations to write a book or become an author? Do you just love reading? Then the Writers & Readers events are perfect for you.


In cosy, informal settings, crime fiction author Alice Clark Platts will be in conversation with Tina Baker . She’ll talk to them about their writing process, how they got started, their inspirations, techniques, characters and plots – and of course to field questions from the audience.

About Tina Baker:

Tina Baker, the daughter of a window cleaner and fairground traveller, worked as a journalist and broadcaster for thirty years and is probably best known as a television critic for the BBC and GMTV. After so many hours watching soaps gave her a widescreen bum, she got off it and won Celebrity Fit Club. She now avoids writing-induced DVT by working as a Fitness Instructor.

Call Me Mummy is Tina’s first novel, inspired by her own unsuccessful attempts to become a mother. Despite the grief of that, she’s not stolen a child – so far. But she does rescue cats, whether they want to be rescued or not.

About Writers & Readers events

Writers & Readers was set up by best-selling author Alice Clark-Platts and journalist and podcaster Marcus Railton to foster an inclusive space in which readers, aspiring writers; and established authors can come together to educate, entertain, and share ideas.


As well as in person talks and interviews, Writers & Readers events are recorded, edited, and uploaded to all major podcast platforms as the Writers & Readers Podcast.
