Many thanks to the Clan Macpherson Association for its loyal support of Pictures at an Exhibition. There was a wonderful turn-out of Macphersons at my book launch last year at Waterstone's Leadenhall Market, and the annual magazine, Creag Dubh, contains a photo of me signing copies as well as a review.

I met up with Carly Butler today, a Canadian in London researching her grandmother's war-time story through the letters she sent during that time and planning a book about the experience. I read about her adventure in the paper and couldn't believe someone was following just the kind of war-time/letter journey for real that I imagined when I wrote Pictures at an Exhibition! What a brilliant adventure she is having. Here is a picture of us at the National Gallery in the shop where I was also pleased to discover that the copy of Pictures at an Exhibition that Carly bought was my third sale of the day.

Please take a look at my article in this month's issue of Best of British magazine (readership 100,000 a month) - all about the National Gallery during the Second World War. I really hope you like it! You can buy Best of British at WHSmith or online.

Very excited to collect a mystery package from the Post Office yesterday and open it to reveal three copies of the audiobook of Pictures at an Exhibition. I didn't even know there was going to be an audiobook! Complete and unabridged and available from Isis Publishing...https://www.isis-publishing.co.uk/osb/itemdetails.cfm/ID/7125
