About us

The site – Frock Friday

Hi and welcome to the website ‘Frock Friday’. My name’s Kerry and initially I set up this website  with a group of friends years ago. Having been through various crises ourselves, it was our intention at the time to share what we’d found most useful in getting us back in the saddle.

Why  ‘Frock Friday’?  Because that’s how we started – by helping each other to sew. We would meet up every Friday, stitch happily, and have something wearable – sort of – to show at the end of every session.  Fun and creative, it was the start of new projects for us all.  We branched off into art, reading, cooking, writing, even exercise, and, although the results of our efforts might not have always been the most dazzling, they worked for us: they helped us weather the disasters that were our lives, and that’s why we wanted to share them with you then.  

‘Frock Friday’ is dedicated to books, books, and nothing but books these days. It looks at writing and reading, and doesn’t limit itself to  specific types of fiction. Having said that, I make no apologies for my initial enthusiasm (which you’ll see over the next few months) for crime fiction.  If my next novel is to be a crime novel, I’ll need to do my homework.

So, welcome to my reading and writing world. I can’t wait to embark on this journey of bookish discovery with you. And let me know if you have any great recommendations to share.
