The Board members of Tidelines are delighted that we will be joined this year by Michael J Malone. Michael is an award-winning poet and author, born and brought up in Ayr. His latest book A Suitable Lie will be published in September. Michael brings a wealth of experience of the Scottish book scene and a knowledge of book festivals which will be a valuable asset to our small but enthusiastic group of volunteers.
At the same tine, we are sorry to lose a valued member of the Board. John Steele, who was a founder member of Tidelines in 2013, has announced his retiral from the group. John with his wife Noreen has written several books about HMS Dasher, as well as other non-fiction works, and is well known in the local area for his passion for the written word. We hope to see John at some of our events in September.
