An author whose recollections of the time she spent living at north Norfolk stately home Felbrigg Hall formed the basis of a series of books gave a reading at a Cromer retirement complex, as part of National Storytelling Week.
Mary Mackie, who lives at Heacham, near Hunstanton, visited Justice Court, on Holt Road, to celebrate the annual event, reading a selection of her short stories to staff, homeowners and guests.
Mrs Mackie, whose husband was a houseman and administrator at Felbrigg in the 1980s, has written more than 70 books, including romantic fiction titles, autobiographical works and historical biographies.
She said: 'I really enjoyed being able to share my passion for storytelling with everyone who attended and it was great to spend the afternoon with such a friendly group of people.'
Thanking the author, Cheryl Bissett, who is regional sales and marketing director at Justice Court builders McCarthy Stone said: 'The homeowners at Justice Court have developed a real sense of community spirit, so this was a good opportunity for them to get together.'
