Cicestrian novelist, non-fiction author and playwright Kate Mosse - known for novels such as Labyrinth, the Sussex-based Gothic thriller The Taxidermist's Daughter, and her highly-acclaimed history book Warrior Queens & Quiet Revolutionaries - will share the story of her career from her role as Founder Director of the Women's Prize for Fiction and Women's Prize for Non-Fiction to being an international bestselling author who has sold over 8 million copies worldwide and been awarded a CBE. Kate will not only bring us up to date with her latest No 1 bestseller The Ghost Ship - a tale of piracy, romance and revenge set on the High Seas - but give Arundel audiences an exclusive preview of the fourth and final novel in The Joubert Family Chronicles, The Map of Bones (out in October). After the talk, Kate will be happy to personalise and sign copies of The Ghost Ship.
