It was a pleasure and a fantastic experience to be at the Boswell Book Festival this year. The rain drops in the marquee reminded me of gers and the beautiful scenery around Ayrshire was just breath-taking. The event was very well organised and I was interviewed by Clara Weatherall.
Another talk I did was at Weegie Wednesday in Glasgow. I met my
publisher Sara Hunt there a couple of years ago and I was pleased to be a guest speaker at this welcome and friendly gathering. It was incredible to meet some interesting people there too. Other authors, song writers, journalists, publishers and agents … everyone is interesting.
Mongolian Woman of the Year Award in London. It was a glamorous do and I enjoyed speaking Mongolian and listening to Mongolian songs one evening. It was good to be back presenting one of the awards this year and managed to fit in an interview for a Mongolian documentary too. I slept for 12 hours when I got back.
