A talk by DENISE BEDDOWS, author and historian


Denise is a writer of biographical Fiction, non-fiction, plays & screenplays; researcher; guest speaker and reviewer of books & films. Her novel based on the true story of her great grandfather, one of the shipwrights who built Titanic is called . 'A Wistful Eye – the Tragedy of a Titanic Shipwright' (under the name DJ Kelly). Her book views the construction and loss of the White Star Line's iconic, yet ill-fated ship, from the perspective of one of the men who built her. Shocking at times to read of the harsh and dangerous working conditions and the precarious day to day existence of the skilled men who built such luxurious liners, yet whose own children frequently died of starvation. The book is however written with pathos, humour and an affection for the characters. Belfast journalist, broadcaster & author, Sam McAughtry, described the book as a lovely read.  The author will have copies of her Titanic novel to sign after the talk.

Denise Beddows (DJ Kelly) lives in Buckinghamshire and has a background in research, investigation and intelligence analysis. One of latest books is called Buckinghamshire Spies and Subversives – covering Buckinghamshire’s  600 year history of subversion, sedition and espionage.
