I was very honoured on my recent family trip to Vancouver to have a Canadian book launch held for me by Elsie Smith. It was perfectly timed for the Jubilee and had the theme of a unique British tea - ladies' only as well! There were cucumber sandwiches, petits fours, scones and all sorts of other treats, as well as champagne to calm my nerves before I did my first ever book reading. I was thrilled to be able to sign some copies of my book and answer a lot of excellent questions about the writing process and how I came up with the idea behind my book. My world book tour has now encompassed England and Canada - next stop Scotland. I am attaching a photo with apologies for the greenish hue which is because the camera battery was almost flat. Thank you to all those who attended and above all to Elsie for making it such a special, memorable occasion for me.
