“You may not remember me, but we met when you came over to do a workshop (a very useful one I have to say) for the Guernsey Literary Festival. I just wanted to let you know that since then I’ve had a crime novel accepted..The contract is for two books so I’m hard at work on the next in the series…Thank you for that workshop, and for the research I’ve done in your books, particularly the factual, police procedure ones. You re-energised me and this is the result!”
