Well the Autumn session of talks and events has kicked off in style. A cheerful evening at Juniper Green WI set the scene. Lots of nice ladies with happy memories of the old stores.
To Morningside next week for another talk then a session at the Portobello Book Festival in their historic fiction slot the following weekend. Its all go.
Meanwhile People’s Friend have published another of my stories. U3A keeps me busy in various groups and, in my other life, I still run my groups for late diagnosed men and women with Asperger Syndrome.
One of the nicest things about having written my book is being asked to talk about it. So there’s something extra nice about being asked by Blackwells bookshop to talk at their Edinburgh Festival Fringe events. Blackwells originally hosted the book launch back in January this year so its lovely to be invited back. Details below.
