Literature from Wales
I’ve come to the conclusion that I should do more to support authors from my home country, many of whom are unknown yet worth getting to know. Readers seem more familiar with authors from Scotland and Ireland than with writers from Wales. I’m going to use this page to try and remedy that. This page will be a series of links to reviews and posts featuring authors from Wales.
