I do quite a few appearances at bookshoops, libraries, and literary festivals. Some writers don't like these kinds of evenst but I love 'em. It gives me a chance to meet readers and other writers and escape from my office.
Tomorrow I'll be appearing at a very special one, The Oundle Festival of Literature. I was invted to attend by Sandra Samwell who I knew as Mrs Bush when she taught me RE when I was callow and youthful. She will also be interviewing me on stage - details and tickets here - so I'm bracing myself for the inevitable questions about how I turned such an excellent religious education into the blasphemy that was the Sanctus trilogy.
I shall be talking about those books and also Solomon Creed - book one and the follow up that I've almost finsihed writing.
Mrs Bush was also the director of the school musicals and extracted a memorable Henry Higgins from me in 'My Fair Lady', though what he was doing inside me in the first place remians a mystery.
I hope she hasn't got any photographs...
