Thanks, Brian -- have to confess I don't spend much time over here, but thanks for your nice comment-- and no, of course he didn't behave himself but we would have been disappointed if he had done! (That would have been living down his reputation.)
I will be attending Harrogate for the first time this year. Would love to meet up with anyone there for a drink. I will e staying with a friend who isn't coming - to save money as I am a freelance researcher/writer.
Thank you so much, Pari. It makes my day when I find out someone likes reading Petrona. It is the nearest I get to being a "proper author" -- still a long way from being like you. Thank you again for your generous words.
