Sorry I haven't been here in a while and I won't bore you with the details. I will say I'm so excited to be involved with the Emirates Airlines Festival of Literature (web page here) this year and tomorrow I get to meet Jeffery Deaver (more details after the event). However I might yell at him as he was responsible for me losing sleep last night.
I may be the only one, but I feel if I'm meeting an author for the first time I like to read their work if I haven't before. So as I don't normally read crime/thriller novels (that is DH's department) I began one of Deaver's last night. Mistake. Page turning, sleep depriving....
He's here because of Project X and I will be attending Face 2 Face with Jeffrey Deaver...
ps...in the opening ceremony of the festival last year Deaver read his poem 'The Death of Reading'. here's the first stanza:
I’ve got what I think is the very best job.
I have no commute; I can dress like a slob
I get paid to make up things-isn’t that neat?—
Just like at the White House and 10 Downing Street
You can find the rest of it here.
pps...do you think I could disguise myself as a Bond girl?
