AN AWARD-WINNING author is holding a book signing in Mell Square today.

Anthony Etherington will be signing copies of his debut novel Europia, a thriller set in an alternative Europe.

A former shop manager, mental nurse, recruitment and development specialist and drummer, Anthony has written several teleplay pilots and audio plays as well as three feature length dramas.

One of these, Yellow Dragon and the Red Fox, won Best Screenplay awards at the European Independent Film Festival and The International Film Festival of Wales in 2014.

Two of his short scripts – Flotsam and Gemma’s War – have been filmed and are available to view on YouTube.

Anthony said: “Europia was originally inspired by friends’ experiences of internet dating. Most made light of the challenges and risks involved, stressing the steps they took to ensure their safety.

“I decided to set the tale in the near future in order to explore, through the main character Marta’s eyes, where we may be heading. Three trends, in particular, play a part in her story: technology and its impact on relationships; globalisation and its impact on family life; and the debate around the future of the EU.”

The book signing takes place on Saturday (September 24) from 11am until 3pm at WH Smiths, in Mell Square.
