I was so lucky yesterday. The wonderful Joan Moules has invited me to take part in 'Meet the Authors' every August for the last few years but this was the first time I actually made it. What a smashing event. And what was most lovely? That the first two tables om the left had side of the room featured Peter Lovesey, Beryl Kingston, me and Simon Brett. Cor. I've known Peter a few years and, bless him, he'd brought me some vintage newspapers because he's downsizing and knows I collect them. Beryl and Simon I had never met and I have to say they were lovely. Totally charming and very friendly.

Now these three authors have stellar careers, and the sort of sales one can only fantasise about, yet was there any hint of a diva about them? No. They were enthusiastically supporting a relatively small local event, they spent time talking to readers, visitors and other authors, and generally they were nice people to be around.

And if you ever get a chance to hear Peter Lovesey reading out some of the correspondence he's received over the years, take it with both hands.
