Retford Authors Group

by | 16 February 2024 | Hobbies, Retford

The Reford Authors Group will be meeting for the next 12 months at the Best Western Hotel, 24 North Road, Retford DN22 7XG. They meet at 10.30am on the first Wednesday every month for coffee and cake, and at 7.30pm on the third Wednesday of every month for a social get together. They welcome any authors or budding authors to join them there.

They had their annual dinner last year at the hotel in December, which was an enjoyable evening.

They are planning a Retford Authors Group Day for Saturday 3rd June at possibly the library or Museum. Their members will be giving talks about writing and publishing and signing recently published works.

You can contact them via 01777 948369 or email Dr Robert Tansey at

The latest book by Robert Tansey is ‘Are You Related To Edward III King of England? You Could Be!’.

Like Danny Dyer of Eastenders, Robert also found he was blood related to the Plantagenet family and Edward III. Find out how he made the connection through his great grandmother Elizabeth Jane Warneford.

You can buy this book by Googling the ‘Great British Bookshop’ and search Edward III. It is priced at £7.00. For signed copies contact the author at one of Retford Authors Group’s meetings.
