A Sidmouth author will debut her seventh book later this month called Pets, People and Places.

The book is a collection of writings by local author Jenny Fensom that focuses on ‘a lifetime of pet care, some family and a 50s childhood.’

To celebrate the release, Jenny will be holding a signing session at Sidmouth Library.

Every book sold will be at the reduced price of £8 and each person who buys a book will be entered in a raffle to win a Christmas hamper, flower display and more prizes.

All proceeds from the sale of the book will go to Sidmouth Hospice Care in memory of long term resident Manuel Martins.

Later in the month, another author will be visiting on Tuesday (November 20) at 3pm, when Janet Dowling brings her ‘Devon Ghost Tales’ to town.
