#Swanwick70: Toni’s In The Book Room
And as we move into Tuesday, it’s hard to believe we’ve reached the mid-point of the week already. It’s Procrastination-free Day, where many of us put aside the courses and concentrate on our own writing; or take an afternoon off to visit the local sights; or just rest our legs, recovering from last night’s exertions on the dance floor. (Or is that only me?)
But before that, let’s see who’s in the Book Room today:
Toni Bunnell is a singer-songwriter, musician, broadcaster, hedgehog rehabilitator and a wildlife biologist with a PhD in polecat behaviour. She has run York Hedgehog Rescue for 28 years. In 2017 she was awarded an Animal Action Award by IFAWUK for outstanding achievement in the field of hedgehog care and conservation. She lectured at Hull University for 16 years and has appeared many times on radio and television including Love Your Garden, Countryfile and, in June 2015, The One Show.
Toni spent five years running music therapy sessions for people with learning difficulties, resulting in the traditionally published book: Music Makes a Difference. She has self-published eight novels as paperbacks, and two non-fiction books about hedgehogs.
The novels have a gothic flavour, an element of parallel worlds or crime with a supernatural twist. A book of poems reflects on A Life Well Lived, a story of loss and recovery. All her books are available from her website and, of course, from the Book Room here at Swanwick.
