Judy Murray is set to make a headline appearance at Irvine's Tidelines Book Festival in September.

The mother of Wimbledon stars Andy and Jamie Murray will be promoting her first novel, the Wild Card.

And you can hear her talking about her life, her career and her new book at the Harbour Arts Centre on Monday, September 11.

Awarded an OBE in 2017 for services to tennis, women in sport, and charity, she set up the Judy Murray Foundation charity in a bid to improve access to tennis opportunities across Scotland.

The Wild Card is described as a fresh, uplifting story about how it's never too late to follow your dreams.  

Twenty years ago, Abigail Patterson put her promising tennis career on hold to have a baby, but after a wild card entry to Wimbledon she finds herself swept up in a world she thought she'd left behind, and this time nothing - and no one - is going to stand in her way.

But with those long-buried dreams of lifting the sparkling silver trophy on centre court inching closer, it’s only a matter of time before the press start digging into her past and uncover the secret she’s kept hidden for so long.

Could the greatest comeback of all time destroy everything she's sacrificed to protect?

Books will be for sale in the venue and Judy will be available for book signings after the event.

Judy will also talk about her tennis career, which saw her win 64 junior and professional titles, and how she coached and encouraged her future Wimbledon winning son Andy.

She was also a contestant on the 2014 edition of Strictly Come Dancing.

Tickets for her Harbour Arts Centre talk cost £10 and are already selling fast so early booking is highly recommended.

The Tidelines event will run from 7.30-8.30pm.
