When Lorraine Reed published her first book in 2016, she was looking to join a writers circle. As she could not find one locally, Lorraine created a Facebook group inviting Writers and Authors to join. Lorraine’s online writers circle “WRITERS IN THE WOOD” currently has over 100 members. Since the group began just over a year ago, Lorraine’s writers circle has allowed many Writers and Authors to connect with each other, leading to new friendships and creating a fantastic support network for like minded people. Since the group began Lorraine and many other members have been very pro-active within their local community, holding many book signings and Author events with local businesses. The Mayor of Hertfordshire, Mayor of Borehamwood and lots of local county Councillors as well as Borehamwood museum, Borehamwood cinema, Tesco, Wickes, Morrisons and local senior citizen care homes have been a great support to Writers In The Wood members.
