Thanks to all my friends – as well as those I don’t know personally – who have continued to be great ambassadors for Bedpans & Bobby Socks and Is the Vicar in, Pet? There is no major news on these books at present, but it was great to hear Emma Gray (One Girl and Her Dogs) on Woman’s Hour a couple of weeks ago. Emma is such an engaging interviewee; it reminded me of the time Gwenda and Pat were interviewed on the same programme by Jane Garvey five years ago. Listen here, if you missed it before, for tales of tea at gunpoint, Gwenda’s lack of common sense, and a ‘dirty old man’ by the hot springs on the Alaska Highway. (I don’t think he was a dirty old man, apart from in the literal sense!) My main news, however, is that When the War is Over will be out in June and – as you can see here – finally has a cover!
