Well, here is a little Blog news for a change, as opposed to having nothing to read but two extracts from my book. (Well, let’s face it, I don’t do that often, so you can hardly expect an apology!).
Saw Barbara earlier in the week. Or should I say: saw Barbara, her daughter Laura, her grand-daughter Jade and Gareth (for good measure!). I met them all Tuesday just gone, and that made a refreshing break. In more ways than one actually, as we also had some wine.
We just caught up with a few things; but then, being the Patron of TheYorkshire Robin Hood Society, I do expect to be brought up to date sometimes! All good stuff – even including all the scandal! (which I won’t mention here!).
Well. I can tell you some, I suppose. Laura brought up the question of my last book, “In the Shadow of the Highgate Vampire” which Barbara had given her to read. I asked her what she thought of it and she said ‘parts of it were indecent’ – although she said she hadn’t read it all yet! Now I don’t know whether to take that as a compliment, because when I asked her ‘which ‘parts’, she wouldn’t say! So I guessed either she meant me kissing a certain young French student in a hay loft back in 1966, or I might have missed something! Obviously, she didn’t!
But apart from that, we just talked. It had been a long day for them, after all. Yorkshire isn’t exactly a close place to get to – or from. I also gave Barbara a copy of my new book “Pact with the Devil” – now in printed form. She is mentioned in it concerning events back from 2007, so I thought she had a right to see it.
Anyway, they stayed in a nice hotel in North London, so hope they all had a good time.
What else? I have still been working on the 2nd Volume of my autobiography, which is still on schedule for this year. The title is a secret at the moment, as is the content – apart from the two short extracts I’ve released here. It covers the years from 1974 until the early 1990’s – I can tell you that at least.
So, its about 10.50. Well, at least another hour before Sunday! Sorry its late anyway,
For the moment,
