Rev. Mel Malton, minister of Christ Church, Berwick and Morden and St. Mary’s in Auburn is also an author. Who knew? She spoke at the coffee and conversation session at the Berwick Library on Sept. 28. It was very informative. She spoke about some methods you could use to get started on writing a book and shared her past endeavours and had several of her books with her.
