I was in London on Thursday 14th July at a lunch at the Society of Authors in Drayton Gardens.  It’s always good to natter with other writers –  stimulating and helpful, though often humbling!  Afterwards I had a 20 minute live slot on RTE (Radio Talk Europe) with Hannah Murray on their Book Programme – which was fun.  In the evening on the way home to Dorset, I went to the Writer’s Village supper in the New Forest – where some of us read out extracts from work in progress which were then discussed.
