This morning I revisited my old haunts at the University of Southampton, where I was fortunate enough to be invited to speak at one of Rebecca Smith’s writing workshops. I sometimes feel a little apprehensive when it comes to public speaking but the students – and Rebecca – were wonderful, asking lots of questions and delving into the recesses of my mind. We talked about a variety of subjects, from writing LYNNWOOD to finding a publisher, and it felt great to discuss my experiences with the group. A big thank you to Rebecca for organising the morning and to those who attended. It was a pleasure to chat with you all – old faces and new!
