Debut novel launch for Eirias English teacher

Mrs Edwards, an English teacher at Ysgol Eirias, has her debut novel launch in November. We're very proud and excited to follow her literary journey.

1780. Wild and windswept Yorkshire. Sixteen-year-old Heathcliff runs from the only home he has ever known in a squall of pain and fury.
Reimagining the three years during which Heathcliff is absent from Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights, This Thing of Darkness traverses countries and oceans in pursuit of one of literature’s best known characters.

Mrs Edwards has been a teacher of English GCSE, A Level Literature and A Level Classics at Ysgol Eirias for over 15 years. The release of her debut novel comes after a long process of research and further education during an MA at Manchester University and a PhD at Bangor University.

Mrs Edwards is a PhD candidate at the University of Bangor and teaches English and Classics in a school in North Wales. Nicola has worked as a journalist and has lectured on race and representation in the media for Race Council Wales. Her non-fiction writing has appeared in Wales Arts Review.

This Thing of Darkness, her first novel, won the Michael Schmidt Prize at the Manchester Writing School
