We each spoke about our books, where the stories came from, writing process, and what we're writing next, and then answered some questions from a select and enthusiastic audience.
The Man came along, and took some photos:
The Thame festival would like to develop more YA events in future, so I hope to be back there again! Especially because I used to work at Lord Williams' School in Thame, both as a teaching assistant and a science technician. If the name of the school sounds familiar to you, there may be a reason: it is the very real school that Kyla attends in Slated.
Thanks to The Book House in Thame for coming along and selling books: they have some signed copies of both mine and CJ's. And thanks also to CJ's technicial assistant (aka hubby) for sorting images of our covers onto a screen.
And the day ended well: with pizza. I hope CJ and I find ourselves on an event together again: she's my kind of crazy.
