Visited London for a whirlwind trip to join BBC Midweek with Libby Purves. Still have no idea what i’ve done to earn a place next to such amazing people. Enjoyed every minute with my fellow guests Scott Albrecht, Dr. Bertolt Meyer and Trader Faulkner and was so enchanted with Trader’s stories that you can clearly hear me laughing through most of the interview. If you missed it you can listen to an EXTRACT or the FULL EPISODE.

Fantastic interview (my favorite so far!) by ever-talented Lee Randell featured in The Scotsman. What a good afternoon – excellent conversation over fish and chips – wish we had hours more to gab about life, writing, relationships and yes, Mary Poppins. Her piece is so well written, her reading of the book keen and thoughtful, and she seems, like magic, to fit something that feels like ME into article form.
