Last week a journo got in touch from my hometown in the UK, (Spalding, Lincolnshire) – behold, the land of tulips and tractors. I answered all his questions and sent a nice image of the new Mills & Boon book, however, he’s printed my face instead and gone with the angle of ‘Becky used to work here when she was at school.’Guardian Free Press
Thanks Lincolnshire Free Press! You sure did inspire my creativity all those years ago by letting me do work experience, (aka, clean out your store cupboards/file a million papers in metal cabinets on my hands and knees, the contents of which are probably now all on one tiny SIM card in someone’s old handbag).
I did get to write a bit, too, I suppose. And I’m grateful. No, really, I am grateful. I’m not JK Rowling. Until the New York Times starts calling us writers, this is what we get. Baby steps, people!
