After dragging my heels for quite a while - life does get in the way - I finally joined The Society of Authors. And it is a good feeling too. I can now consider myself part of an elite group - and the membership card looks nice!
Was it February 2016 when I did my first book talk? Indeed it was, and it was at the Castle Keep, where I spoke about Bela Lugosi prior to the screening of his classic chiller White Zombie (1932). Even his ghost paid us a visit!
The high point of 2018 finally arrived with my annual visit to the Swanwick Writers Retreat. This year is special because not only is this the 70th anniversary of the Retreat, its my 10th year. And a lot has changed in my life over those 10 years!
