Thank you for asking me to take part in the Hardy Today event. I enjoyed it very much.
I SO enjoyed yesterday. It was a real pleasure to meet you all and what a lovely festival, lovely venue and lovely audience. And Jason was just brilliant. Thank you very, very much for inviting me.
Paul was an excellent interviewer, and I loved the format. Great audience, acoustics...
It is really great to have a Literary Festival in Dorchester and I really appreciate all the hard work that goes into making it happen.
I was particularly delighted by how many of the audience seemed to know and appreciate my work. As you know, authors are solitary creatures - mostly - and for me at least it's a real pleasure to have good reason to leave my work-room (a shed in the garden with a too-seductive view of the Cambrians) and meet and talk with readers and fellow writers (not forgetting that many of us are both).
Thank you for allowing me to be part of this great event. Well done to both of you, fantastic event.
