Boot Camp with my Editor!

A couple of weeks ago I spent a lovely few days with my delightful editor, Imogen Cooper, sorting out my third book. Here are some photos of us hard at work…. or rather, her keeping me captive until I finish the book (if you prefer!). It seems the kidnap narrative isn’t just reserved for my […]
