Authors Misbehaving
Books, For Readers, More of Me

Redbridge Book Award

More of Me has  been shortlisted for a few regional awards which is absolutely lovely. Even lovelier is that you get invited to award ceremonies that are heaps of fun. This week I was in Redbridge  with Teri Terry, Anne Cassidy, Christopher Edge and Peter Bunzl.

We were spoiled rotten with an amazing lunch – I ate all the cake before it could be photographed but you know, if you will serve macaron that perfectly match my hair, I am going to eat them.

There was a quiz in which I answered all the questions about More of Me without any help from Peter Bunzl. I’m such a fibber! How do you forget things from your own book!!?  Mind you, I wasn’t alone, cough, cough… Needless to say, the author table did not win the quiz.

We did all enjoy answering  the very interesting, beautifully phrased questions, such as:

Do you magpie away ideas?

Yes! We all do. We pick up all the shiny ideas and squirrel them away .

As if we weren’t spoiled enough, we were given flowers and certificates.

It was huge fun and then someone gave Christopher Edge an award and it went completely to his head….
