Just returned from an excellent session with the Teenage Reading Group at Selsdon Library in Croydon, South London. I did four readings – two from Black Tat and two from Tim – and discovered in the process an unfortunate side-effect of the ongoing recovery from last weekend’s dental shenanigans: I kept spitting, by mistake! Now, I put a lot of wallop into my readings, and you have to expect the odd fleck to fly out every now and again (the key thing is not actually to gob on your audience – or if you do, to apologize straight away 😉 ) But this, I mean, it was even more than usual! EW!!! ;p


My thanks to Aaron (hope I’ve spelt that right!) for those excellent questions, and to the rest of the Group for not only containing their disgust (hee hee hee!) but also for listening to me so wonderfully attentively. Thanks, too, to Liz Rose, Children and Young People’s Librarian at Selsdon, for inviting me along and giving me such a warm welcome. Hurrah!

My next event will be this Tuesday, from 4.30-5.30, at Stamford Hill Library. Let’s hope by then I’m able to keep my natural juices under more control, eh? ;p

Hee hee hee!
