Books are my Bag

I will be attending a Books are My Bag party at Forum Bookshop in Corbridge this Saturday with fellow Crafty Publishing author Tony Glover. Drop by for coffee, cake and a chat. If you live too far, keep an eye open for a Books are My Bag party in your area and let’s keep paper books on shelves! Forum Books is where I bought my first book with my own pocket money when I was seven. It was a Nancy Drew.

Article in Newcastle Journal

There was a lovely article about moi, my company Crafty Publishing and one of our authors, Tony Glover in last week’s Newcastle Journal. It was the lead article in the Culture Section. Those of you who know me well might notice though that it says I was a journalist in Cape Town in the early 90s when you all know I was a care-free student still at Rhodes at that time. My mistake, not the journalist who wrote the article – I wasn’t clear enough in the interview. Not surprisingly as I was rushing off to a book launch at the time. So for the record: I was a journalist in the late 90s. And my daughter was born in 2005 in England and didn’t travel with us from South Africa in 2002. Still a great article though! Tony and I also had a brilliant time at the launch at the Literary and Philosophical Society of the print versions of The Peace Garden and Cars Just Want to Be Rust.
