The Authors

Bobby Nayyar
Bobby Nayyar is the publisher of Limehouse Books and host of the Yurt Salon. He will be reading from their latest publication, Butades, which is a crime novel by the Northern Irish writer T.P. Sweeney. An exceptional literary crime novel set in a dusty American town, which reads like Ellroy visualised by David Lynch.

Catherine O’Mahony
Catherine O’Mahony has an MA in Creative Writing from Lancaster Uni. She once won i-D Magazine’s Young Writer of the Year competition for her autobiography in 750 words and used to be a music journalist for Mixmag. She is the author of the Young Adult novels Absent and Spoilt, which was longlisted for the Mslexia Children’s Novel Competition.

Cole Moreton is a writer and broadcaster exploring who we are and what we believe in. His latest book The Boy Who Gave His Heart Away tells the true story of a modern medical miracle. His Radio 4 series of the same name won gold at the Arias in 2016, soon after he was named Interviewer of the Year at the Press Awards. Cole’s first book Hungry for Home was shortlisted for the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize. He sings and plays in a band called The Pilgrim Mothers. Cole is an East London boy who ran away to the seaside but loves the city more than ever.

Phoebe Stuckes
Phoebe Stuckes is a poet from Somerset. She has been a winner of the Foyle Young Poets award four times and is a Barbican Young Poet. She has performed at the Southbank Centre, Wenlock Poetry Festival and the Poetry Cafe, and was the Ledbury Festival young poet in residence in 2015. Her poetry has been published in The Missing Slate, Rising, The Morning Star and Ambit among others.

Stefano Paolini
Better known as a stand up comedian who tours on national and international circuits, Paolini is also the author of Missing Presumed Drowned, the true story of Italians living in Britain who were interned during the Second World War – an important account of a little known national tragedy.
