National Library hosts @EdinburghNapier MA Creative Writing graduate's event, May 10th

Catherine Simpson
On May 10th the National Library of Scotland is hosting an event about the debut novel by Catherine Simpson, a first for a graduate of the Creative Writing MA programme at Edinburgh Napier University.

Catherine's novel Truestory was originally written as her major project while studying for her MA part-time. She continued working on the book after graduating and it was published by Sandstone Press last September.

Catherine will be talking about her novel with BBC Arts producer Serena Field at the National Library of Scotland in Edinburgh from 6pm on Tuesday, May 10th - tickets are free, available online here.

Her novel Truestory
Truestory is the wry and moving tale of a Lancashire farmer's wife whose life is dictated by caring for her autistic son Sam. Catherine has participated in numerous events to promote the book, such the Aye Write! Literary Festival in Glasgow last month.

She has not been resting on her laurels. A short story Catherine developed while studying on the MA has been selected for the next volume of prestigious annual anthology New Writing Scotland, and she's already hard at work on her second novel.
