As I mentioned a few days ago, I am now an Award-Winning Author.  In a bid to make as much noise as I could about this – being a self-published author means being your own [under-funded and under-staffed] marketing department – I contacted everyone I could think of who might be willing to publicise my success.  And one of the first to reply was Leigh Chambers, who “appears” on our local radio station, Cambridge 105, and who interviewed me back in October 2015 (as a local author) on her “Bookmark” show.  She explained that all of her current “Bookmark” interview slots are taken, but invited me to come in to her daytime show instead and have a chat.  Which I did on Thursday last week, and it has now been issued as a ten-minute podcast.  So you can hear me talking about Sam, “Portraits of Pretence”, the Discovering Diamonds “Book of the Year 2017” award, and other writerly things.

A couple of things to note: the Cambridge 105 website refers to me as a lawyer, which is flattering but wrong; and I had no idea that they were going to photograph me, so I am wearing my casual squirrel dress and no make-up.  Writers on the radio do not expect to be seen…
