Hyperdome Library was pleased to host a visit from author R.J Timmis on the 4th of June. Rebecca has been dubbed the next J.K Rowling and she happily discussed her new book "David and the Heart of Aurasius" which is her first published novel and the first in a series of five.
Rebecca dabbles in animation, web and graphic design, children’s writing and illustration and gave many useful tips on writing fantasy fiction and publishing.
