Literary lunches and lambs…

What a busy few weeks! Although I’m up to my eyes researching and writing my new book, I’ve been travelling all over the place doing lovely book things. First a few days in London with my editors and publishers and my agent Caroline. Then back to Dublin and what a treat chatting to the wonderful ladies in ‘The Yacht Club’ Book Club about their favourite books at the packed out Writers Lunch held in The Royal St George Yacht Club in Dun Laoghaire! Donal Ryan, Catherine Dunne, Martina Devlin and Paul Carson were among the writers talking at the event.

I celebrated IBBY Book Day at Cabra Library with a group from a nearby school. I was also in beautiful Westport at Scoil Phadraig talking to their pupils with pupils from Holy Trinity N.S. joining in the fun. In the afternoon I went to Lankill School, a small rural school which is surrounded by stone walls, hawthorn bushes, sheep and their lambs where I talked to the boys and girls there about my books and writing.
