Speaker Kathy McNally
Talk about Edward VIII and the twice divorced Wallis Simpson. It has romance, intrigue and espionage. After eighty years the truth is emerging, piece by piece about the events that shook an empire.
For most of her professional life Kathy McNally was involved with research posts, books and authors. She studied at Strathclyde University for her first degree in Modern European History. While living in Scotland she acted as a Publishers' Reader for new authors of children's books and was a judge for the prestigious Carnegie and Greenaway awards on several occasions. Kathy was also as a freelance researcher and broadcaster for BBC Radio Scotland.
Currently she travels widely as a Guest Speaker including on P&O cruises giving talks about spying and espionage. When at home she indulges her passion for horse racing. One of her favourite race courses is, as might be expected, Taunton.
